About the Author
Christina Uss has written about bicycling and travel for many magazines and newspapers. The Adventures of a Girl Called Bicycle was inspired in part by her own experiences while biking across the United States, once widthwise and once lengthwise. She is also the author of Colossus of Roads, a middle-grade featuring bicycle conspiracies, terrible traffic, and one carsick boy's grand plan to save his family business.
