It arrived! My copy of Nicole Cooke's Cycle for Life arrived by mail today. I have been looking for this book for months, and finally found it at Fishpond. I had a flick through it at lunch time and it looks great. It is designed for the beginner right through to the serious cyclist and covers everything from purchasing the bike, to bike maintenance, to getting started, to serious training programs.
I can't wait to have the time to sit down and read it properly. I sense a new cycling challenge on the horizon!
