5.0 out of 5 stars A witty and cute guide to cycling, 22 Jun 2012
This review is from: Heels on Wheels (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have been thinking of dusting off my old bike and getting back on it and so chose this book as it looked like a fun companion. The main premise of the book is to offer practical advice for the modern gal who would like to get back in the saddle even if they've not ridden a bike since they were a child.

As well as an introduction, resources and index - there are 6 chapters. These are: Getting Started, How To Incorporate Cycling Into Your Lifestyle, Cycling Safety, Parking (Or How To Ensure Your Bike Isn't Stolen), 'Just One Last Question...', and Bike Maintenance.

The writing style is witty and cute and I have to admit that I wondered whether the information contained within would be all a bit light and fluffy. It's true that the information won't make you a cycling expert overnight but it is informative and useful. Furthermore, the pages aren't stuffed full of text so it's easy to read and leaves you turning the page to read just one more bit of information/tip.

The book is interspersed by drawings and cartoons. As well as this, there are decorative pages and pretty ways to divide the text into readable chunks. Overall it looks really nice and I liked the style and layout throughout.

If you, or someone you know, is planning to get back into cycling then this book is a great read. It's fun and informative without being too overwhelming and will make you want to get on your bike all the earlier. 5 stars.
