Publisher Comments:

Filled with practical tips that any adult bike owner can use instantly, this book includes advice on everything from how to handle a sore butt and choose accessories to how to avoid helmet hair and mount a bike while wearing a miniskirt. This updated edition contains new and revised information about current bike types, locks, and recent products such as the strap-on magnet that lets bikers change traffic lights to green. An updated supplier directory and list of bicycling resources, such as web sites and advocacy groups, are also included. Illustrated with step-by-step instructions on every page, this book is especially helpful for riders living in the urban jungle.

Synopsis:

City dwellers who own a bike or are shopping for one can make cycling the same liberating experience they enjoyed as a child. Urban Bikers' Tricks and Tips tells how to choose the right bike, make basic roadside repairs, and ride confidently and efficiently on any city street or path. As they bike more often, cyclists need to know how to protect their bodies in extreme weather and their bikes with locking methods that prevent theft. Gathered from cyclists around the country, many of these secrets will surprise readers with their ingenuity. More than 700 illustrations and photos make these concepts instantly practical.
