Any other recommendations?
Yes. _Cyclecraft_ by John Franklin. It's been published in Britain
for years, but an American edition just came out. It's about
practical cycling in the real world, and the important topic of how to
ride on real roads where there are real cars. It does a very good job
of showing how to handle yourself on the road.
It's much more condensed and better edited than John Forester's
_Effective Cycling_, and it's much more diplomatic and less
curmudgeonly. It's also much, much more sensible than Hurst's "Damn
Forester, nothing can save you but becoming mystically, hyper-alertly
one with traffic" rants.
