Join us for a special Bike Shop Storytime with author and artist Alison Farrell who will read and sign her amazing and popular book, Cycle City!

From the publisher:
“When little Etta the Elephant goes to her Aunt Ellen’s house, she takes a journey through bicycle-filled Cycle City, a town filled with bikes of all kinds! At the end of the day, a special surprise awaits Etta–the most amazing bicycle parade imaginable. Detail-rich illustrations in this fun seek-and-find book paint the colors of this unusual town where everyone rides some kind of bike–whether a penny-farthing, a two-wheeled unicycle, or a conference bike, everyone is on wheels! Packed with prompts and lots to see on every page, this is a sweet story for the sharpest of eyes.”

Stories will be read in the family-friendly bike shop’s comfy play area (and yes, the bathroom has a changing table!) and if you’d like to learn more about bicycling as a family, stick around for a Q&A session afterwards.

What, you wanted a bike parade, too?! We’ll be biking the 3/4 of a mile along a family-friendly route to Books with Pictures after each hour-long storytime/Q&A. Suitable for even the smallest riders. Come a little early to ask about borrowing a bike for the ride–Clever Cycles has a few bakfietsen and longtail kid-carrying cargo bikes to loan for families who want to join in on the fun.

Thank you thank you thank you to Liz Holladay from Clever Cycles for the awesome illustration and Leslie Hickey of Hoarfrost Press for the graphic lettering.
