Here is a list of bicycle books which I have found really useful in my quest in using bicycle as a mode of transport. In fact, one thing I have realised is that it is just not enough if you merely learn to ride bicycles, rather you should also pick up essential skills in bicycle maintenance which will hold you in good stead, especially when you tour. I found the following bicycle books quite feature rich, having beautiful photographs and also relevant information for the modern bicycle rider.
Ultimate Bicycle Book
This is a beautiful book which combines fascinating photographs of the most popular bicycles of today and tomorrow, with invaluable step-by-step information on bicycle maintenance.
Everyone who owns a bike should get this, especially if you’re just starting out. It is really what got me started off and I still refer to it now and then. You see so many riders out there with incorrectly set up bikes. This book will teach you how to set up your bike correctly, and provide you with essential knowledge on cycling.
