I couldn't decide on a good title for this post. One must make these things so that they are googleable, however I would rather have something catchy, and yes even kitchy, but it is the price one must pay in order for people to find these things.
I recently learned of a new film being released called Premium Rush
in which a NYC bike messenger is featured. As an avid cyclist, this
peeked my interest although I am miffed by the whole one speed bike with
no brakes, but then again I don't live in a place that is flat and I am
not brave enough to go without brakes. Also, I love my fast road bike
with its many gears. After watching the trailer a few times (yes, I do
get a little obsessed over these things), I couldn't help but think of
all the wonderful books out there that feature cyclists and their
riders, something that for most kids is a major part of their growing up
experience. See my previous entry regarding Summer Sounds.
So I pulled together a small compilation of books that aren't about
bikes, but rather feature them. I hope it will add a book or two to your
reading list. And the movie trailer of course.
