Many of us have recently dusted off an old bike and got back in the saddle for the first time in years. This is great news; we will be enjoying the health, financial, and emotional benefits for decades. But if you've not ridden a bike since childhood, it's a challenging prospect. This book is a confidence builder for the nervous new or re-newed cyclist. In three clear stages the book covers the benefits of cycling, looking after your bike thereby avoiding trips to the bike workshop, and above all, the real-world advice you need to become a confident cycling commuter and road user. Engagingly written by cycling expert and author Alan Anderson, all this comes in a small, readable format, with attractive illustrations by David Sparshott.
Alan Anderson's first book about cyling Muck, Sweat and Gears (Carlton) is now in its third edition and has sold over 35,000 copies in the UK. Also author of How to Build a Bike in a Weekend, he volunteers at a community bike workshop during the week, and rides the Sussex Downs at the weekend.
