    I learned with training wheels.

    I learned before training wheels…LONG before.

    Wow. For the first time, after reading this strip for at least a year, I can say …


    I’m a Plugger!

    No training wheels in 1954 for me, either. Just parents and a gravel driveway.

    I know what they’re going for, it’s a classic image, and it’s the way I, personally, learned to ride. But the phrasing of this really bugs me. EVERYONE starts on a bike that has one speed. What maniac would give a little kid a ten-speed? Yes, I know this is a play on words, but it’s not strong enough to make up for the tension it creates in the reader’s mind. I guess I just think another caption could have made this work better.
