A new and exciting children’s book is hitting the shelves, taking young readers on an unforgettable adventure through the world of mountain biking. “Mountain Biking Adventures with Izzy: Etiquette is a Big Word” is a fun, rhyming book that celebrates the joy of riding mountain bikes and imparts valuable life lessons.
Written by professional mountain biker and long-time skills coach Lindsey Richter, this enchanting book is designed for children aged 3 to 8. It introduces them to the exhilarating world of mountain biking through the engaging story of Izzy and her friend Lyle.
“Mountain biking changed and saved my life, and I have been on a mission to educate women and girls about the power of the sport,” said Richter. “I wish I learned a lot of these life lessons from the bike at a younger age, so hopefully, this book will help the younger generation realise how bikes can build confidence, teach them how to face and conquer fears and help them see what they’re capable of on and off the bike.”
In “Mountain Biking Adventures with Izzy,” young readers will join Izzy and Lyle as they embark on an eventful ride through the forest. They’ll twist around trees, navigate challenging trails, and learn about trail etiquette. Izzy serves as an inspiring role model, teaching children the importance of being prepared for adventures, taking care of others, and showing respect for the places we play.
But this book isn’t just about mountain biking etiquette; it extends its message to encompass various aspects of life. It promotes good manners, respect for people and the environment, and the significance of being prepared and planning ahead. “Etiquette Is a Big Word” encapsulates essential life values, making it a valuable addition to any child’s bookshelf.
The creative force behind this remarkable book goes beyond Lindsey Richter’s expertise. She collaborated with aeronautical engineer Heidi Ashwell, who conceived the idea for this inspiring tale. The book’s captivating illustrations were brought to life by talented artist and fellow mountain biker Kristina Wayte.
