Must Watch: Mike Hopkins Examines the Experiment That is Childhood in 'Siblings'
Our stories are all different, yet the same, and the names are endless: Adventure buddy, co-pilot, copy-cat, tag-along, queen, king... The list is long, but what it boils down to is simply brother or sister, or as I like to put it, best friend, worst enemy.Childhood was like one giant experiment and, being the younger sibling, my fate as human guinea pig was sealed from the get-go. But like Dad always said, "Every scar is one part story, and one part wisdom," and by the age of 10 us kids could have opened our own library. Over the years, we gained a lot of “wisdom” together, trying to best each other and take on the world. Through it all, bikes have fueled our adventures, sparked our imaginations, led us through a few battles, and continually reminded us of what’s most important: we’re all family. As kids, our ticket to freedom was also our ticket to ride. And let's be honest, nothing settles the fate of that final chocolate chip cookie like a super-sonic pedal-cranking race to the end of the street. Because Like Brothers, and Sisters, Bikes are Awesome.
