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.
