Just Ride: A Radically Practical Guide to Riding Your Bike
Lucy Hannigan's review
Sep 02, 2012
I am not a bike racer so the book wasn't written for me--the author is trying to get serious long distance bike racers to stop the madness and just enjoy the fun of bike riding. I love riding my bike and we do a lot of family rides, but sometimes I don't enjoy riding just with my husband because the rides feel like a death march...a constant push to ride as fast as possible for mileS. Since reading the book, I have started to slow down a bit, to look at the scenery (as opposed to it being just a blur) and to enjoy the ride itself instead of just looking forward to rolling into our garage and getting off the bike. The author also included some technical information about bikes-- some interesting and some boring and too technical for my kind of riding, but I read every word and maybe someday it will come in handy as small talk at a dinner party!
