Banana-Seat Inspired Bicycle Memories and Nostalgia
A couple of weeks ago, we posted a link to Schwinn’s remake of their classic Sting Ray banana seat bicycle. So many people commented on Facebook with memories of their first banana seat, that it got us thinking about all of our favorite memories on a bike… our first adrenaline rush after the training wheels came off, our first single track and the first time we made the decision to ditch our car and strike out on two wheels. It’s still those memories that bubble up while we’re riding to work or cruising down some trail — breathing the cold, crisp fall air and getting our feet and hearts pumping.
There’s just something about a bike that invokes that kind of nostalgia and contentedness for us here at Osprey. And we know we’re not the only ones. We’d love to hear some of your favorite bike memories! If you have one of your own to share, please post a comment on this blog… and keep riding that bike!

Every Wednesday on Ditch Your Car we’ll be bringing you just another reason to spend more time on two wheels. Be it a photo, a statistic or an inspirational video, we want to keep reminding you about why riding is great!
