Road To Valor

As you may have noticed from an earlier post, I do enjoy bike riding.  That is as a nice casual ride.  Perhaps to the grocer,
a ride around the petit lake in our neighborhood... mostly for fun.  Although I must say that this summer has not presented
any time to do such a recreation.

Perhaps you know that the Tour de France 2012 has been running since June 30th and winding up this Sunday, July 22.
However did you ever hear of Gino Bartali?

For a wonderful end of summer read, Road To Valor, by Ali and Andres McConnon is the perfect book.
Thoroughly researched by this sister and brother writing team! A REAL LIFE story!  What a life!

Hi Mary,

I was aware of La Tour de France and find it amazing of the hard ride it must be and all the stamina and endurance. Thanks for sharing this book and will look out for it.

Happy weekend
