Interest in bicycling is growing rapidly, with worldwide industry sales up 10 to 25% per year over the past decade.
There are currently 450 million bicycles owned in the US, with over 60 million adult riders.
Interest in commuting (gas prices), health and fitness (boomers retiring), and environmental concerns (zero emissions) are converging to make bicycling a subject area of continued high growth.
This book is designed as an introduction to bicycling, and features current information along with professional quality step-by-step and identification photos.

Comments about Bicycling:
This is a general book which is nicely presented, but is designed in USA for people in that country, so road rules are different and they ride/drive on the other side of the road.
This doesn't matter in a book largely about bike maintenance, but does in this book, which is about encouraging people who don't cycle, to do so.
