I can divide the story of my love affair with bicycles into three chapters.
At the age of 4 I got my first three wheels bicycle from my parents. At that time I could not know that it was just the beginning of a life time experience. I have a very clear image of me riding on my childhood bicycles in these early days of mine.
At the age of 40, my wife bought me a special birthday present: a brand new diamondback bicycle. This marked the 2’nd cycling chapter. I’ve started to ride different types of mountain bikes on a regular basis, near my home and abroad, in many bicycling tours around the world.
Several years ago – The third and current bicycling love affair of mine has started three years ago, when I’ve started my first web site about Bicycles and Bicycling.
Many things have changed along these years. In October 2010, I took part in a gorgeous bike riding trip along the Rhine River in Germany, France and Switzerland. We were two bikers on our first, yet short bicycle touring trip, exploring the beauty of the Rhine valley, as well as ourselves and our passion to bicycling.
On May 2015, two of my best friends and I came back from another great trip: a bicycle trip in Japan. You are most welcome to read more on our 450Km ride from Takayama to Kyoto.

Hi there, hoping someone can help me ID this tricycle (?) The manufacturer brand is quite worn, but perhaps someone knowledgeable can identify the brand from the color scheme/shape?
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
