"This is a boy whose name is Mike. This is Mikes pride and joyhis bike "
So begins the inspiring tale of a boy, his best friend, and the adventurous relationship that many children begin when they are young and continue the rest their lives!
Illustrated in a retro-contemporary style, Mike and The Bike rhymes its way through Mike's choosing of his favorite toy - his bike (of course!) - and follows him off on adventures around the world and back home, where he goes to bed wearing his helmet, ready for the next day!
Mike and The Bike is the first childrens book written by Grammy Awardwinning guitarist and songwriter, avid cyclist and riding partner of Lance Armstrong, Michael Ward.
Mike and the Bike came into being, appropriately enough, while Michael cycled near his home in Los Angeles.
Includes a foreword by 6-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong and a 30-minute CD with music by Michael and his son, Tennessee Ward, plus a special musical narration of Mike and the Bike by the "Voice of Cycling," Phil Liggett.
