Mountain Bike!

Mountain Bike!
William Nealy

    At first glance, you may think that Nealy isn't serious about teaching riding skills. The hand-printed pages–colored with hilarious animations–give the guide a comic-book appearance. But instead of assaulting his readers with dry chapters on technique, Nealy leads his readers on an entertaining tour of the mountain-biking world and how to survive it.

    He explains how to bunny hop, how to downhill, how to ride powerfully, and how to crash with style. He also includes a "Stupid Bike Tricks" section. One trick, The Invisible Mountain Biker, explains how to jump off of your bike and let it glide, unmanned, across the path of frightened hikers. Note that Nealy advises against heaving your bike into a crowd of hikers. Existing laws prohibit it.

The No-Drop Zone

The No-Drop Zone
Patrick Brady

   The No-Drop Zone covers all the information necessary for a new cyclist to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to take them from buying their first bicycle to starting their first race. Cyclists will learn how to handle the bike, perform minor maintenance, select clothing and accessories, join clubs, and find events.

    Anyone can buy a road bike and go out and ride it, but to ride in a group, one needs specific skills from being able to avoid bumping into other riders when riding in close quarters to fixing a flat quickly enough to rejoin the group. Why would a competent adult want to ride in close quarters with other cyclists? Because riding in the group may be as close to flying in a flock of birds as a person may come. The experience is at once social (imagine being able to talk to a friend as you ride), exciting (descending in a group is a thrill), and exhilarating (finishing a long hill gives the rider a huge sense of accomplishment). Also, the fitness benefits of riding in a group are enormous.

    From a discussion about the bicycle and its components to skills, nutrition, and training, The No-Drop Zone has all the knowledge a cyclist needs to move to that next level of skill.
