Riding a bicycle is something you never forget - even if the last time you owned a bike it had playing cards pinned to the spokes.
People of all ages and abilities are flocking back to bike riding; driven in part by the sport's cool new mainstream appeal, but also perhaps by memories of childhood. Forget the sleek gear, the environmental brownie points and the built-in waist whittler - bike riding is fun!
The Practical Cyclist is Bicycling 101 - a completely accessible guide for both the novice and those of us who traded out bikes years ago for our first set of keys, and are unsure of how to start biking again. This handy guide cuts through the confusion of a bike shop visit by providing the reader with clear information on equipment, technique, safety and accessories, how to choose the right bicycle, and how to set up for your preferred style of riding.
Anyone can ride a bike and look good doing it. You don't have to go fast, you don't have to go far. You just have to go.
