It was a magical time--a two pedal world, when bicycles weren't just a toy--they were a kid's chief mode of transportation. A coming of age story about the adventurous life of a boy growing up during the 1950's through the early 70's in a Midwestern town. Discipline was harsh, supervision often rare, and adventure was high.
Parents struggled to maintain the innocence of their children, despite a grim reminder of war, and the inequities of an adult world caught up in the emotion of the times. When a dollar of penny candy could fill your paper bag, baseball was king, and kids played outside well into the evening.
A Two Pedal World-The Beginning, morphs from a few kids playing and riding their old bikes to a 1,400 mile journey of a lifetime on bicycles in the book's sequel, A Two Pedal World--The Journey.
