    A book for ALL women RIDERS!

    I think this is a great book for novice and experienced riders. Its an easy read but contains loads of information on cycling and finding the right bike for you. The information is well organized and not overwhelming. After reading half the book, I felt confident going to bike shop and finding a bike that was right for me. After finishing this book, I am confident that I have acquired the right bike for my 1st triathlon and interested in making biking my new sport. I recommend this book to all women cyclist. Enjoy.

    As a big girl novice, this book has given me the confidence to begin my bike shopping journey. Reading from cover to cover, I now know what to look for in a bike, how to shift gears,and particularly what to look for in a bike shop staff since it is mostly a male dominated sport. Thank you so much! I highly recommend beginning the journey here with this book.
