I don't know what sparked this. Maybe my son Quinn's interest, a want to lose a few pounds or who knows but I just recently bought a Mongoose and have began riding again. Of course not at the level that I once did. For the most part I haven't touched a bike or a skateboard for that matter in 15 or so years. Riding again has brought back some old feelings of freedom that I had forgotten about. That feeling I used to get riding alone in a parking lot at 3am or going at break neck speed 20 or 30 miles a day in the many tracks I would take across Des Moines in my Youth.
