A mother and child hop on their bike for a ride through town, meeting all kinds of people on all kinds of cycles. It isn’t long before their zooming group gets bigger and bigger! I adore this story that celebrates the joys of biking and diverse communities.

— Hannah P

The community that rides together, thrives together! New York Times bestselling comic creator Lucy Knisley celebrates the joys of biking in this picture book about coming together to build safer streets and a brighter future for all.

A mother and son hop on their bike for a ride through the neighborhood, joining friends and neighbors along the way. There are people on unicycles and tandem bikes, tricycles and recumbents—all kinds of bikes for all kinds of riders.

Before long, the bikes outnumber the cars and trucks, taking up more and more of the road until they form a parade of sorts, smiling and popping wheelies, ringing their bells, and celebrating the beautiful community they all share.
