Just Ride, A Radically Practical Guide to Riding Your Bike
by Grant Petersen
- 212 PAGES
Bicycle commuter, reformed racer and proprietor of Rivendell Bicycle Works in Walnut Creek California, Grant Petersen means what he says: Just Ride. He covers equipment, health, safety and attitude in 87 short and illustrated, often provocative essays. Number 30: Control Your Quick Release (a major cause of serious incidents). Number 47: Bags. "When I see a bicycle without a bag (or basket) on it, I see a bike that can't do much beyond moving you down the road, and that's not enough." The man has a point! Our friend Paul Steely White, executive director of Transportation Alternatives here in New York says, "Grant Petersen Strips Away the BS."
