Book Review; The Phantom Cyclist

Found this book in a trash dumpster last week and gave it a read the other night. Although it was fun to find a book with a cycling theme and story, the writing and plots would be better for those under ten years of age, or those wanting to re-live and experience what they may have been reading a half-century ago. It was first published in 1971, boy time flies !

You should start mailing it to those who are interested and would like to read it. Let each reader mail it to the next, so each pays the postage to the next. That way, all it takes is a mailing address but no funds are exchanged..

Thanks for the heads up. Will add this to my grandsons reading list. As a book, printed on paper, with pages... Ha
