 At Eroica Britannia we're all about cycling! Can you tell us about the first bike you owned?

My first bike was a Raleigh with 24 inch wheels and rod brakes. My folks bought it for me second hand when I was 11 years old. I learned to ride on that and thought it was great. However having got the cycling bug early on I soon discovered gears and lighter weight frames so graduated to a Coventry Eagle. Every evening after school I put a couple of bricks in my saddlebag and went out training ready for the weekend when I was off with my mates for a social ride every Sunday. Social ride indeed. It was all about getting to the destination before my mates and being first to get back home hence the during the week 'brick' ride.
