5.0 out of 5 stars Great for anyone wanting to get back in the saddle, 31 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Heels on Wheels (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When I first stumbled upon "Heels on Wheels", I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, as often anything branded "A lady's guide to..." runs the risk of being patronising.

However, I have to say that this book couldn't be further from that.

For someone like myself who is venturing back into the saddle after a prolonged break (longer than I'd care to remember), "Heels on Wheels" provides a number of useful tips, on everything from what saddle and lock to buy for your bike, to how to avoid those pesky bike thieves, right through to combating helmet hair and inadvertent knicker-flashing when wearing a skirt! What's more, Dailey's writing style adds more than a dash of humour to the mix, making it not only an informative read, but an entertaining one too.

Dailey also includes an entire section dedicated to answering questions we all need to know the answers to, but are too embarrassed to ask, making this book indispensable for anyone wanting to get back into cycling, whatever their reason.

All in all, a fabulous book for all budding cyclists out there!

Do you think this book would be any good for someone who has never, ever ridden a bike? Not just a long absence from riding, but no experience whatsoever?

Absolutely. It works from the ground up, covering all the basics, so you have all the essential information at hand. It also contains a really handy set of links/contact addresses at the back linking in to the issues covered, so if there is something else you need to find, it gives you a good idea of where to look. Hope that's helpful!
