“Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body” - Joseph Addison

Here at the Bike Club, we had to mark this day with something special, since:

World Book Day aims to change lives through a love of books and shared reading 📚

And we aim to do the same through a love of cycling and shared family bike rides 🚲

As parents, we know that getting your child to grips with a new skill isn’t easy. But nothing compares to the thrill you get when they reach those milestones! Whether it’s seeing your child lose themselves in a book for the first time, or watching them balancing on two wheels and discovering the freedom of cycling - that feeling of joy is much the same. 🤩

So to celebrate the day, Team Bike Club are sharing their favourite books to read with their children:
