It was the mid-’50s, and William Cannon, who
was 6 or 7 years old, was teaching himself to ride a
bike using the old ride-and-fall-and-ride method.
Making his way down the street of his Wauwatosa
neighborhood, he spotted a red-haired, freckle-faced
kid of about 4 watching. “Trying to ride a bike, eh?”
asked Patrick Dunphy.
How far they’ve come.
