Wombat Books, 2010. ISBN 9781921633126
Recommended. Not only has Lorin Nicholson told an inspiring story of an amazing achievement but he is sending a message to all young people, that success can be achieved despite any disability, if you want it badly enough.  The dream of riding a bike from his home in the country to the coast was met with scepticism by his school mates. His parents however supported him and his father planned the three hundred kilometre trip and drove along with him. Each page relates the frustrations and exhilaration Lorin felt each at each turn of the pedal. David Emerson illustrates this courageous story with colourful graphics that will appeal to ten to twelve year olds.
