Narrator Jennifer Barnhart makes listeners care about a girl whose actual name is Bicycle. Bicycle was abandoned as a baby at the Mostly Silent Monastery in Washington, DC. Now 12, Bicycle is obsessed with meeting her hero, Tour de France winner Zbigniew Sienkiewicz. When she is sent to sleepaway camp, she runs away and sets out on a cross-country bike tour to San Francisco to meet Zbig. A grand adventure follows in which Bicycle relies on the unlikely kindness of many strangers along the way. Barnhart deftly handles a mixed bag of colorful characters including a hillbilly Civil War ghost, a Kentucky Derby announcer, a nonagenarian bike mechanic, a haughty estate auctioneer, a French chef, and the sweet optimism of Bicycle herself.
