Who doesn't remember what it feels like to be a young person on a bike? Cycling offers kids an unrivalled freedom and independence. With global cycling trends on a new, post-pandemic high, ever more young people are experiencing the joys of the beautiful machine.

This book is aimed at young people who are just entering into the world of cycling. It explains all the basics: How to choose a bike (types of bike, getting the right fit), basic maintenance (changing a tyre, cleaning your bike), cycling techniques (pedalling, gearing, cornering, bunny hops) and next level cycling (competitions and training).

Alongisde these informative texts there is a cornucopia of facts and trivia about the unusual habits of famous cyclists, the weirdest, biggest, furthest and longest bikes and journeys, the most useful cycling life-hacks, etc. This multi-layering of information makes this an enjoyable toilet read as well as an extremely useful manual.

Clearly written by author, photographer and cycling enthusiast, Peter Drinkell, it is beautifully brought to life with bright colour photography and charming illustrations by the talented Thomas Slater, making a beautiful package for the beautiful machine!
