A revolutionary gust of common sense brought to everyday bicycle riding, composed by a reformed racer who's commuted by bike everyday since 1980. Forget the ultralight, uncomfortable bikes, flashy jerseys, clunky shoes that clip onto tiny pedals, the grinding out of endless miles. Instead, ride like you did when you were a kid—just get on your bike and discover the pure joy of riding it. Grant Petersen shares a lifetime of unexpected facts, controversial opinions, expert techniques, and his own maverick philosophy. Short, easy to read and immensely inspiring and entertaining two-to-three page chapters. Filled with tidbits about being an 'unracer' and everyday rider, with useful experiences equally applicable to motorcycling. By Grant Petersen. Softbound. 9”x4.4”. 256 pp.
