I haven’t been interested in biking all my life. It wasn’t until I was 14 — the year I had my biking dream — that I started pedalling. In the dream, I picked up a bicycle I found on the sidewalk and simply started riding.
After that, I used my brother’s bike to practice for real, and on my third go, I hit the road to travel to my high school classes. Then, I wanted my own bicycle, because anyone that lives on hand-me-downs knows the great feeling of finally having something that’s your own. That’s where Charlie’s Freewheels came in for me.
