Pedal It!: How Bicycles Are Changing the World
Pedal It! celebrates the humble bicycle—from the very first
boneshakers to the sleek racing bikes of today, from handlebars to
spokes to gear sprockets—and shows you why and how bikes can
make the world a better place. Not only can bikes be used to power
computers and generators, they can also reduce pollution, promote
wellness and get a package across a crowded city—fast!
Informative but not didactic, Pedal It! encourages young readers to
be part of the joy of cycling.
