One is in the open. The sounds, smells, shapes, textures, and colors are available to be enjoyed with all of one’s senses. Do you want to you ride fast, or exercise your cardiovascular system, or explore an interesting area, do some chores, or just enjoy the sheer pleasure of a great ride on a beautiful day? All of these are grand reasons for cycling on the road. But how does one ride safely? This book for U. S. adults who drive cars regularly but who also want to bike on the road.

It discusses the skills one needs to be a good rider. It reviews specific road conditions and how to handle them. It uses personal stories to illustrate important safety points.

About the Author:

Dennis Eichenlaub is a retired engineer. Besides bicycling, his interests include hiking, reading, technology, and his family. He took up cycling in 2009 when it became obvious he needed much more aerobic exercise. Consulting with is doctor, he slowly increased the length of his rides. He enjoys cycling immensely, now riding several thousand miles a year. He thinks nothing of riding 40 miles for lunch. His wife thinks he's nuts. He rode from Asheville, NC to Bangor, Maine; doing the northern part of the ride one year and the southern part the next. He is relieved and proud to have completed his first book.
