The Lovereading4Kids comment
A great book for boys and girls, experienced cyclists and relative beginners. It is full of fun activities and interesting biking facts - longest bike, fastest bike and much more - as well as practical tips on getting to grips with bike tricks and mending a puncture for instance. Whether you have a BMX (Bicycle Motocross), an MTB (Mountain Bike) or the latest cool Velodrome racer there is something everyone in this great value activity book. It really is a Wheelie Good Book. The puzzles, games, colouring and drawing will keep youngsters happy for hours...when they’re not out on their bikes, of course!
Review from Mum Friendly, parent blogger On seeing My Book of Bike Activities H exclaimed “WOW! Is this for me?” and then sat in silence doing several of the puzzles – not completing them all, but just a little bit of each one, or using her finger to trace the bike race, so as not to spoil it a second time. It’s a book she enjoys going back to. As a parent, I like to think of My Book of Bike Activities as being like an issue of a good children's magazine – lots of small activities and articles that will keep a child entertained, plus they’ll learn loads about bikes too. Highly recommended!
My Book of Bike Activities A Wheelie Good Book by Catherine Bruzzone
There are snippets on ice bikes, cycling speed records and historical penny-farthings. For the courageous, there are step-by-step guides to simple bike tricks like the popular ‘foot jam endo’ and for the beginners, fear not, there is plenty of hands-on, practical bike advice to get everyone started. Cath’s enthusiasm for everthing ‘bike’ ramps off the page and will appeal to professionals and amateurs alike.
“My toughest cycle touring experience was pushing our bikes up a so-called ‘short cut’ in Catalonia three years ago.” laughs Cath Bruzzone, keen cycle tourist and author of a new cycling activity book for kids. “It was only about three kilometres on the map. The track was so steep and stony, we slithered back as much as we stumbled forward.”
Strangely enough it hasn’t put her off cycle touring and she and her partner, David, have also cycled from London to Venice and Snowdonia to London. “We added a ‘granny gear’ on my very ordinary bike so I can crawl slowly up most mountain roads. This and my two pairs of padded shorts are the sum total of my specialised touring gear.”
These trips and her love of local cycling encouraged Cath to write a book for children, My Book of Bike Activities (subtitle A Wheelie Good Book). “There are loads of books and magazines for Mum and Dad but not much fun and interesting for their kids.” Cath’s two daughters rode to school on their bikes and have ‘fond’ memories of cycling and camping holidays. “Well, one French holiday near Dieppe we spent most of the time sheltering from the rain,” says daughter Annie. “And I remember cycling round the Isle of Wight against the wind!” agrees Lucy but they are both now commuter cyclists in Cambridge and London.
