Product description

Containing all the knowledge required to get started riding a bicycle for everyday transportation, Elly Blue introduces readers to the basics, including shopping for a bike, honing street smarts, dressing properly for conditions, carrying everything from groceries to children to furniture, and riding in all weather. Although the daily commute to and from work is included, the focus for this manual is to make a lifestyle change to a transportation bicyclist whether it be to run a few errands, pick up the kids from school, or head to a birthday party for a friend with the birthday cake. Encouragement and entertainment are found throughout in the form of personal anecdotes, stories of impressive feats performed by everyday people, and whimsical illustrations. With its positive, practical approach, this book will prepare anyone considering making this lifestyle change to hop on the bike.
