There have never been more reasons to hop into the saddle: not only is it fun, healthy and speedy, it is the ultimate environmentally-friendly way to travel. Governments are making it more appealing all the time, with dedicated cycle lanes springing up all over the country and subsidised cycle purchase schemes. This invaluable new guide takes you through all the green benefits of bike riding, along with everything you need to know to get pedalling: how to choose your bike - with the differences between types, such as hybrid and racer; how to choose your helmet, clothing and other accessories; and, care and maintenance. Step-by-step photographs complement the clear and practical text, to make this an ideal guide for all levels of cyclist.
