One upside of COVID-19 restrictions has been the renewed interest in biking; some people, including author Allan Anderson, call it a “Bike Boom.” Cycling, according to Anderson is a “magic bullet” that achieves so many positive things in such a simple way.
It has taken COVID for many want-to-be cyclists to open the door to this insight. And seeing this trend of “returning” cyclists, Anderson has put together the ultimate and well-illustrated resource with his new book, “Back on Your Bike: Becoming a Cyclist Again and Other Bike Stuff you Need to Know.” He aims to provide the basic information an urban cyclist needs to ride, including bike maintenance know-how and confidence in how to ride. Easy to read, this short book uses many illustrations to highlight the most pertinent information.
