About the Author

Michael Ward is a Grammy Award-winning guitarist/ songwriter and passionate cyclist. Michael's love of cycling began in the early 90's when he started cycling around the country while on tour with bands including THE WALLFLOWERS, SCHOOL OF FISH and BEN HARPER AND THE INNOCENT CRIMINALS.

HASH(0x9c60ce34) out of 5 stars Motivating for my Son July 25 2005
By Derek Star - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I've been trying to build my Son's self-esteem - Ethan is seven now and I would like him to feel confident about getting along with his friends in all types of sports as he gets older. We've golfed, played soccer, baseball, tried wake-boarding, snow-boarding and now he's really beginning to enjoy his bicycle.

This year Ethan followed Lance Armstrong in the Tour de France. Midway through the race I purchased Mike and the Bike from Amazon. Ethan loved it!

He was able to imagine himself in Mike's place. The fun graphics and catchy audio CD had him reading and singing everyday. Mike and his Bike, is Ethan's hero now, his training wheels are off, and he is riding strong, just like Lance!

The author did a great job. Lance Armstrong's introduction made Ethan take pride in the book. Ethan got a real kick out of the fact that the same guy, Phil Liggett, who narrated the tour on OLN TV narrates the audio CD which follows the book.

If you are looking for a fun book on the spirit of cycling for younger boys and girls, this book is it.

HASH(0x9c2afc9c) out of 5 stars Wish there was more substance to the story Aug. 12 2005
By S. Fleming - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this for my 6-year-old son who LOVES riding his bike and watched part of the Tour on TV with us this year, but he hasn't been interested in reading it again after the first time.

I think the story is a bit too simple to hold his interest, and I wish it had been developed into a longer story that had more "meat" to it. It seems to me that "Mike and the Bike" is a story more geared for kids in the 3-5 age range. The CD reinforced my "younger kid" impression because the songs are sung by a child rather than an adult.

HASH(0x9c50f498) out of 5 stars Very cute and colorful book July 13 2015
By E. Ervin - Published on
Format: Hardcover
We received this book as a gift for our boy who likes it quite well. It has very colorful pages that he enjoys. The poetry is neat. All in all it is a fun book to read to a little person or to have a beginning reader read to you - maybe with a little help. Since we received the book after the Lance Armstrong disasters, we have down played his part in the book and not discussed his activities at this point. Other than that fiasco, we think it is a cute book that he enjoys quite a bite.

HASH(0x9d751768) out of 5 stars 4 year old loves this book and his bike Oct. 22 2005
By J. M. Mckay - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Our 4 year old got this book and LOVES it! Our son is almost as big as a cycling fan as his dad, so it is quite exciting for him. Now when he rides he often quotes sections of the book. Warning for parents, the CD can get a little annoying after you listen to it over and over and over. I really like having the story read on the CD. I wish more books were available on CD. This book and CD have provided a lot of entertainment for our son.

HASH(0x9c458ea0) out of 5 stars Sing along and have a blast!! Sept. 9 2005
By Jeffrey B. Wells - Published on
Format: Hardcover
As an avid Lance fan and cycling junkie I bought this book for my kids to enjoy. I have 3 boys ages 2,4 and 6.

They enjoy the book and they REALLY enjoy the CD that comes with the book. The opening with Lance is great and the music that follows even has me bobbing my head.

Every bike ride since we pretend one of us is "Mike" and we sing some of the songs as we enjoy our ride together!

PEDAL POWER is the best!!

If you are looking for literature to challenge your kids this is not the book for you however if you are looking for a really cool/entertaining book you will love the book and CD. I know we do...Vive le Lance!!!
