When I was little we lived on a long flat cul-de-sac accessed from a steep hill. We used to have various bike related games which kept us amused for the long summers... the favourites were: Skidding competitions.... you ride as fast as you can to the dusty end of the street then slam on your back brake and hold the skid until you stop.... the furthest skid [marked by a stone] wins, or, the furthest free-wheel [you just had to trust people and anyone suspected of sneaky pedaling was eliminated that round] to a stop, aagin marked by a stone. There were five of us all around the same age. We also used to be buses, picking up imaginary passengers at lamp-posts and setting off tinging our bells. Ah, the innocence of playing out! What did you used to play?
