A Free Spirit eating raspberries.

My first 10-speed bike, Sears Free Spirit.
But in yellow!

My first bike was something special. Growing up in Edmonton in the seventies my parents bought me a Sears Free Spirit 10-speed bike. A birthday present. I can remember it was  beautiful yellow with black plastic handlebar tape. I rode that wonderful heavy steel bike everywhere  and loved it! This was my first love affair for a road bike. Highly memorable.
Another thing that relates to summer riding was our back yard raspberry bush. After a ride I would raid that raspberry bush and have immense pleasure eating those delicious berries. 

My perfect summertime relationship; bikes & raspberries...
Here's to Summer!
