Being Young in Bradford

Continuing with our series of blogs and extracts focusing on the experiences of ‘Being Young in Bradford’.

This week’s memories are being shared by Abby.

I was one of the first Asian scooter boys.

Abby is the central figure in the front of the group

I was so bored and looking for something different. I knew a guy who introduced me to scooters and I got the buzz.

It went from a weekend thing to a way of life. I was accepted everywhere I went as someone who belonged. They were my brothers and sisters. What we did back then I wish we could do all over again.

It was so diverse; where people from different cultures and backgrounds came together and enjoyed many years of fun, fate, and fame.

I’m tempted to get another one even now.

Abby has also selected a great soundtrack of some of the the music he and his friends were listening too – see the spotify link below!
