More and more Kiwis are keen to take up cycling, but don't know how to start. Popular media personality Jon Bridges wants to take biking to the masses - and have a good dose of fun along the way.
Easy Rider outlines the many joys of riding a bike in New Zealand, and provides a complete beginners' guide - from riding for fun, to commuting, riding for fitness, mountain biking and even racing. We learn about the reasons for, the reasons against (there aren't any), the basics of buying a bike and getting started, riding in New Zealand traffic, training and racing, safety and etiquette, maintenance, gizmos, gadgets, Lycra - and so much more.
Told with Jon's amiable sense of comedy, boundless energy and passion for the subject, and accompanied by illustrations and photographs throughout, Easy Rider is your one-stop bike shop. Two-wheeled heaven is just one enjoyable read away. (This book, that is.)
