ASK July/August 2017
Title: Meet Your Bike
Where did bikes come from? And where are they going? Take a ride with the latest issue of ASK! Did you know that the first bikes didn’t even have pedals, or that early bikes were called ‘hobbyhorses,’ ‘boneshakers,’ and ‘ordinaries?’ Read about the history of bicycles in “A Bumpy Ride.” Meet artist Ai Weiwei, who creates sculptures from bikes, then learn about how the parts of your bike work together to give you an awesome ride!
Want to spend a day in the city? See how big cities around the world are “Making a Place for Bikes.” See bicycle-riding soldiers in 1897, or wacky bike designs in 2017! And don’t miss your chance to create your own bodacious bike decorations for this month’s contest! Even Marvin and Friends are joining in the fun.
Regular features include: Nosy News, Nestor’s Dock, Bot’s Mighty Math, Ask Jimmy and the Bug, Contest and Letters, and Marvin and Friends.
