Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Effective Cycling is a guide to the proper techniques of riding, whether for commuting, recreation, or sport, and a manual for bicycling assertiveness on the roads. It is based on the philosophy that bicycles are vehicles and that their operators should have the same rights and responsibilities as the operators of any other type of vehicle.

Knowledgeable cyclists have treasured the earlier, hard-to-come-by editions of Effective Cycling, recognizing it as a definitive manual on all aspects of the bicycle, the rider, and the unique man-machine entity they create together. This fifth edition incorporates much new material based on its use in instructional programs sponsored by the League of American Wheelmen.

Effective Cycling covers the mechanics and maintenance of bicycles, the physiology of the rider (efficient posture, muscle strength, oxygen and food consumption, heat control, aches and pains), basic techniques of pedaling and maneuvering (including emergency maneuvers), the environment of cycling (traffic laws, the causes and prevention of accidents, changing lanes in traffic, riding the intersections, night riding, riding in the rain), and modes of cycling enjoyment (commuting and utility cycling, mountain riding, club riding, touring, racing, family cycling).
