June Challenge, deep into the archives

My entry into the Trike category of the June Challenge. Actually one of the few pictures I have of my early days.

July, 1959 (very possibly a birthday present)

61 years later, I’ve made it to two wheels. Who knows, maybe I’ll be back to three someday.

June, 2020

Tried to get the same pose, but didn’t quite make it.

Newly retired guy who likes to ride his bike in Vermont. Well, actually retired in 2016, so not really 'newly' at this point.

    Great before & after. My only critique is that you COULD have leaned a little more forward and to the left. Seriously though, I got a good chuckle.

      I know, I didn’t quite get my chin down on the handlebar. I also didn’t capture that determined look, I obviously had more focus when I was younger.

    I love this photo, but it makes me a bit rueful too. I’m pretty sure there was a photo of me riding my first trike, right after finding it under the Xmas tree when I was three. I promptly rode it into the tree. Unfortunately I’ve never been able to find that photo again in my parents’ archive.
