I found a great 50-page free book published online about riding your bike to work. It talks about people’s common excuses and reservations for not bike commuting. It has practical tips to make riding better. Statistics on commuters are sprinkled through the book showing how bad it really is not.
Warning: it has some awesome advertisements for products not available in the US. Pages 8 and 9 have an especially steamy spread (I’m sure you’ll agree with me). Don’t call me asking if I can order you one of those bikes, they won’t sell one to us in the US. When that changes, I want one of the first ones!
