Flash 55-New Ride,New Me

Nothing better
Flying down a hill
Coaster brakes
Straining
Tires sqealing
That was then
This is now
Or Tomorrow
My new ride
Will be waiting
24 speeds
Color of root beer
Fat tires
Waiting to fly
Humming a song
I jump on
Pedal
Pedal
Wind blowing
Through my mind
Bringing me back
Moving me forward

It is that time again--this week flew by without the help of my new bicycle! Pictures coming soon. Until then, if you can write it in 55 words--tell the g-man! Happy Flash Fiction Friday!

I wasn't sure if this was about a bike or a toyota at first.

This is my 55 this week!

[if you decide to stop by, scroll down below my Show n tell, as always, to find my FF55]

Have a glorious weekend.

I love the sound of your root-beer bike! The wind blowing through your mind is a wonderful way to put it.

Oh, this makes me want to get a bike. I miss that...."bringing me back, moving me forward."

Great Spring 55!!!

New bike! How exciting. Love how you teased your ride. Makes me want to go out to the garage and pump up a tire or two and get to it. Great 55. My 55 is HERE .

Single-speed, coaster brake, clothespin and an ace of spades. Bicycle brand of course. They last the longest.

What a memory. Thanks.

Wheeee! I enjoyed the ride. I know you will too.

BTW, "the color of root beer" is a great image.

Old memories dying to become new memories. Sounds good.

So fun!

And strange, because I was just thinking of a bicycle memory, but it wasn't a good one. Thanks for bringing back the breeze and joy!

That reminds me of how much fun it was to be a kid...wind in your hair and not a worry in your head. Thanks! :)
