Reading Ride With Me NYC for the LGRAB Summer Games
Roos cleverly included all the old Dutch names for the places she rides. You can get away with that when you are dutch. Can you find Boswyck, Vlissingen, or Konijnen Eyland? She adds clear maps tracing each route with solid directions and details of the special places along the way.
If you are curious to find a copy one can be ordered from any of your favorite local bike or book shops. Adeline Adeline and Rolling Orange both in New York carry it. If you do get a copy take it for a ride to your favorite cafe, order a "cortado" and settle in for a fun vicarious jaunt on two wheels in New York. (Then stash the book away for the next time you are in New York and get to take a ride. She even tells you where to rent a bike.)
We read it for the LGRAB Summer Games hosted by Trish and Dottie over at Let's Go Ride A Bike. I know we are a little thick with the advice lately but you should click on over there and get playing. Maybe you could even win some prizes!
