Gr 5-9--With the growing popularity of the sport, this is a timely offering. In a straightforward, clear style, King discusses the history, equipment, standard maneuvers, competition, tricks, safety reminders, and repair tips. The concise text is interspersed with many full-color photos showing boys and girls both in action shots and demonstrating step-by-step maneuvers. There are also detailed diagrams of the bike itself and the derailleur. Helpful sidebars explain safety tips and highlight specific parts of the bike. All riders are wearing helmets. A useful, well-done title to update sports collections.
