Oliver Carbonell has had a love for getting around by bicycle since childhood and also enjoys writing in his spare time. He combined his 2 passions by writing his first published book "Peter Learns to Ride His Bicycle". The book seeks to entertain children with a short story about a kid who learns to ride his bike using a proven method for learning. Anyone of any age who is interested in learning to ride, or teaching someone to ride, can benefit from the techniques explained in the story. He looks forward to writing about the adventures Peter will soon have on his bike... now that he knows how to ride it!
Oliver enjoys teaching children and adults to ride as a volunteer with BikeNewYork and as impromptu opportunities arise. He writes about his passion for cycling and the cycling business on his blog found at www.dailybicycle.com. Oliver currently resides in New York City.

This is a great book for parents preparing to teach their children to ride the bike. The book gives you a fun illustrated story to read with the kids to get them excited about learning to ride and also provides a how to instructions for the parents on the back of the book. My son will be four years old in two months, but learned to ride the bike without the training wheels after only four short practices using the techniques in the book. My son knew what to expect from reading the story and had a lot of fun throughout. I highly recommend this book to all children and parents!

A wonderful book. I've started our son, Ramon, on a strider push bike and he's definitely starting to warm up to it. I think going at his pace is key. Peter's story will help us keep in mind the key principles and daddy's two favorite principles - keep it fun and a bit of speed is helpful:). Thanks Oliver!
