Bikin Billy Murray!
Updated: Apr 13, 2020
Billy Murray introduced me to two other hobbies during the 8-12 year old range. He had a nice new bicycle and Billy was always doing the pedaling. I remember riding on the handle bars with no helmet while we explored most of the streets in western Covington. It whet my appetite for cycling but since there were no paved surfaces on the farm, I never had a bike of my own as a child. This was corrected when my parents took me with them to Florida (Jan. – Mar. 1943). There they rented me a bike and I explored many streets from Largo to Dunedin at age 15. I rode almost daily from Clearwater Beach to Clearwater High School.
