On a recent trip to the Netherlands [where I fell in love with the bike culture
], I used a bike that stopped not by the usual handle-brakes but by pushing back on the pedals, like a lot of kids' bikes. This got me nostalgic for the bike I had when I was little and then got me thinking about other stuff in my past which I loved but are no longer.
My inquiry about what you miss from childhood and wish you could experience now as an adult is the Gapers Block topic of the week
, if anyone wants to weigh in. Would love to hear your thoughts!
