Good morning,

In searching about a blue Clayton Willard bicycle that I picked up yesterday at Goodwill I came across the story about the red bicycle. It was a great read, my son being 8 years old I look forward to stories like this of our own. I also came across this Craigslist ad being I'm from Saint Louis and it seems you are too I figured it would have to be your old bike or just like it.

Best,
Mark

Does Tift Merritt's words from NPR's Morning Edition relate to the Red Bicycle story? It reminded me of the writing experience.  The Red Bicycle represented many things, among them destination and a never ending winding road. That the story is finished when the heritage has ended.

Original Morning Edition interview with Tift Merritt aired October 9, 2012.

Second photo of the building where Franklin's Bicycle once was.  It is now an apartment building.  Photo taken by Benjamin Nesler.

Benjamin and I drove to the Camper in Highland on a long adventurous tour. Stops included Elijah Lovejoys monument in Alton, Illinois. On the way through East Alton we passed the building where Franklin's Bicycle Shop use to be. The mural was still visible. Ben captured two pictures with his iPod. The building is now an apartment. The owners looked out the side door a couple times wondering what we were doing. I tried to get their attention, but they apparently were not interested in conversation. The shadows of this picture were very bad. The close up was good enough to post with the Two Bicycle story.
