Remember the freedom you felt as a child when you received your first bicycle? That first taste of freedom, a vehicle that could take you around the block and around town. Over the years the car replaced this carefree fun and if, like your bicycle chain, your riding skills have rusted over the years, this book is for you. Recapture the fun and freedom with this beginning primer on the world of cycling, containing all the information a new or returning cyclist needs to ensure a comfortable, safe, reunion with an old childhood friend.
Interest in bicycling is growing rapidly, with worldwide industry sales up 10 to 25% per year over the past decade.
There are currently 450 million bicycles owned in the US, with over 60 million adult riders.
Interest in commuting (gas prices), health and fitness (boomers retiring), and environmental concerns (zero emissions) are converging to make bicycling a subject area of continued high growth.
This book is designed as an introduction to bicycling, and features current information along with professional quality step-by-step and identification photos.
