When you go on vacation, you probably travel by car or van.
Sometimes you may take a train or an airplane. But have you ever wanted to travel the country on two wheels? On a motorcycle?
Author Carol J. Cooper has ridden motorcycles for almost twenty years. In her book, Kickstands Up, she allows young readers the chance to ride along across the country and share many of the things motorcycle riders—bikers—experience in their travels. You will see how some of the things you learn in school can also come in handy on your journey as young bikers.
Through the story and photographs, you’ll come away with a better understanding of what goes into traveling on a motorcycle. You’ll also come to know the type of people who become bikers—in other words, all types! Including a grandmother, like the author.
