The author's humorous approach to taking up and training for biking is a laugh out loud read. The reader is taken along for the ride and feels the joy, success and struggles, and yes, the pain of the bike seat. Whether you are an experienced rider, a casual rider, want to take up biking yourself, or just want a fun peek into the world of cycling, this book is for you. As the author pokes fun at herself, shares her new found knowledge of cycling, offers many training tips, you'll be laughing all the way through. It's a page turner.
