LESBIAN’S WIFE FINDS THE BIKE SHE LOST IN 1970
A friend pointed me to an amazing story from CapeCodonline. It’s about a lesbian from Massachusetts whose wife stumbled upon her long lost banana seat bike tangled in the brambles of the woods near their home in Wellfleet. As the story goes, an 11 year old Lisa Brown accidentally pitched herself and her bike into the muddy waters of the Herring river off a rickety bridge. Lisa was fine, but her brand new bike was never seen again. Unbelievably, this Spring, her wife found the bike while walking their dog a quarter mile from where Lisa fell into the river 42 years ago!
As a tomboy in grade school with my own a banana seat Schwinn Stingray, I spent all Summer cruising around my California neighborhood barefoot and shirtless. In 1970, a boy stole my bike and tossed it down a ravine full of poison oak and stinging nettles. I got my bike back, but Lisa wasn’t so lucky, until now!
