This is an interesting story of bicycle development. I would never have imagined that the first bikes did not have pedals. The rider had to use shoe power to get a bike to move. VERY hard on shoes! Excellent text and illustrations.

If you enjoy bicycles, this is a great book! It fits my decor in my apartment. It compliments the 6 Antique bikes that I have displayed in my living room. Interesting information and great pictures.
