Wanna feel like a kid again? You can, you know. All it takes is a time machine called a bike, and an inspiring, true story that moves you to action. Traveling at the Speed of Bike tickles your memories alive and then gives a rubber-hits-the-road account of what happens for a woman and a country at a crossroads when a beloved bike comes down from the attic. It may make you rethink what is possible with pedal power at any age, in any place. Perhaps it will even help move municipalities toward greater action in providing safe-access-for-all sooner rather than later. Or maybe this book will simply serve to remind you of your purpose and passion (whatever it may be), and to trust the journey.
