My first bike was a 20″ single speed Huffy from Sears. I remember it was from Sears because it had a badge that said so. I once freaked out my Mom and Dad by riding it from my house to a good friend of mine who lived over 10 miles from my house. Anyway that was my start, and yes, I started with training wheels which for some reason my Dad did not take them off for me. He told me that if I didn’t want them on here is the wrench go take them off yourself so I did. It was not easy riding in my neighborhood due to the sandy dirt roads that we lived on.
