About the Author
Richard Ballantine was a cycling journalist, writer and advocate, born in America and later living in London, England. He was Chairman of the British Human Power Club and chair of the International Human Powered Vehicle Association. Ballantine's best known work, Richard's Bicycle Book, was published in 1972 at around the time that cycling began to recover in popularity. It was at the head of a new wave of publications advocating the idea that cyclists had a right to use the road, and that their safety, not the convenience of others, should be of paramount importance. He also founded several magazines including Bicycle Magazine.

I have no hesitation in recommending this or indeed any of his other writings. This man was a pioneer in the revitalised UK cycle scene in the 1980s and his vast experience shows through in his accumulated wisdom.
Gone but certainly not forgotten. His epitaph is the cycling Nation that Britain is hopefully becoming. One could not wish for more.
