Viewers also get a glimpse of some human-powered vehicles that are one of a kind.

Activity Suggestion: Explain that THE BICYCLE MAN is a true story, therefore the book is classified as nonfiction. Visit the school library and help the class locate the fiction and nonfiction book to check out and read.
