More and more people are getting on their bikes and discovering what city cycling's all about. It may be cycling to work, it may be cycling to get your groceries and other stuff, or it may be cycling for fun - going out to meet friends and socialize.You don't need to be a hardened, experienced cyclist to use your bike in the city. But you might feel like you could use a little help and guidance, and that's what this book is all about.First up is a point-by-point look at the pros and cons of cycling in the city (with the emphasis very much on the positive, as you'd expect, but not ignoring the less appealing stuff). Next comes a comprehensive guide to what you'll need and where to get it - types of bike, their components and the extras they may have, accessories, clothing and more - along with sound advice on what you really need and what you can get along just fine without.The next section provides you with all the help you'll need to get the most out of your bike and the whole city cycling experience. After that, there's a few thoughts on where your pedals might take you once you've got past the first few turns; things you might like to do to get even more out of cycling.Last but not least, there's a glossary of the terms used, which you can use as a reference when you're reading the book - and which will help you know what they're talking about at the cycle store!The author is a true veteran of city cycling, with over twenty years experience of riding bikes in various large, busy cities. The Urban Cycling Handbook gives you the benefit of all this experience, printed in full color and written in an easy-to-read style.
