Dangerous Bicycle Mystery Quest

"Peter Gelman's DANGEROUS BICYCLE MYSTERY QUEST delivers everything its peculiar title suggests and then some." "MUST READ" -- BookReview.com

"The book was unlike anything I'd ever read before. I enjoyed reading DANGEROUS BICYCLE MYSTERY QUEST, and I'd definitely recommend it." 4/5 stars -- San Francisco Book Review

Does energy equal destiny? It's a race against time for Portland, Oregon, resident Zonny, an avid cyclist whose fate is irrevocably changed when a petroleum plague spreads over the world. 

The plague puts a disastrous halt to traffic, food production and industry, obliterating the comfortable life she has always known. For Portland, the immediate question becomes: can the city reorganize to feed itself before law and order fails? The sudden energy shock reveals cracks in the social order. And many don't want society to change. The urban-rural divide threatens to become violent.

When Zonny's sister Camille, an epidemiologist, tracks the source of the plague, they set out on their bikes to find the cause of the plague and bring back hope to the city residents.

Traversing the scenic landscape that is now marred by remnants of the disaster, Zonny finds her beliefs and faith tested in unexpected ways. And, as the expedition becomes more and more divided, the goodness she represents becomes a symbol that's larger than life along the way.

A variety of forces and ideologies attempt to destroy Zonny in this adventure story that tackles philosophical issues of energy, sustenance and progress. Her fate—and the fate of Portland—may finally crumble when she confronts an unyielding machine that is bigger and more self-contained than anything else she has yet faced. . . .
