Book Review: Everyday Cycling

Winters a great time to snuggle up with a good book, and here is one you will find enjoyable and useful.  I like the focus on everyday cycling rather than a sports / fitness orientation.  It is written in a friendly, enthusiastic style and stylishly presented.  And it has a bit of info for families – another thing missing from most cycling books.

Of course what we really need is a book on cycling just for families, but that is not far away!  Meanwhile, check out:

Everyday Cycling by Alastair Smith

Here’s what one reviewer had to say:

This book is ideal for first-time cyclist and also has some worthy tips for the more experienced cyclist…The content layout and colour images are clear, simple to read and very comprehensible…For such a small book, it covers just about everything you can think of for urban cycling, from selecting a bike and cycling gears through to riding skills, bicycles on public transport, basic bicycle maintenance and recommended routes in major cities throughout the country…Above all else, this book is a great gift for the person ‘who has everything’ including a bike that’s just sitting in the garage collecting dust.

It is available in bookshops and online from Awa Press, RRP $35.
