Zoom! The Story of a Boy and his Balance Bike

If you’ve been following our blog for a while now, you know the story of Axel and how his tragic death has kickstarted an amazing project to get kids on balance bikes.  If you missed it, you can find out more about the Axel Project and their story here.  It’s one we stand behind 100% and love to see succeed!

Now the mission expands with another literal Kickstarter Campaign to publish the book “Zoom! The Story of a Boy and his Balance Bike”.  Geared towards kids aged 18 months – 5 years, the book tells the story of a boy (very similar to Axel) and his love for biking everywhere.  The intention is to once again get kids excited about biking and foster a life-long love for cycling.

zoomYou can check out the short Kickstarter video and campaign here.  There are 16 days left to contribute…and they are actually REALLY close to their $8000 goal.  Even $1 helps.

The book will be available in both board book form and glossy (and sturdy) paper pages form.

We encourage you to check out the book, the Axel Project, and to continue to encourage biking in our children.  Happy Friday!
