The lede for this story was
School Children, Were Forced to Use Their Bicycles on Field Trips During the Fuel Crisis in the Winter of 1974. There Was Not Enough Gasoline for School Buses to Be Used for Extra-Curricular Activities, Even During the Dark and Rainy Weather
Today that same bike is being ridden and more popular than ever. 74 was the year of the fuel crisis and when Specialized was founded. Redline made history too and containers of bikes would arrive from overseas and get sold on the spot.
