Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A funny and comprehensive guide, Go Fly a Bike! is crammed with everything a rider wants to know about his or her favorite sport. A bicycle is "the kid's vehicle — from about age six until they drive ears, kids play, socialize, compete, explore, sense freedom, and ride to school on bikes. This is the book for them — and there's nothing like it available. From how bikes work to the coolest BMX stunts, from crucial safety information to a step-by-step guide for planning the perfect bike hike, this expertly organized book has something for all readers, whether their interest lies in history, trivia, physics, extreme sports, or just a quick spin around the block.

Review:

"Here's a lively blend of history, science, trivia, and practical advice about bike care, repair, and safety." Booklist
