Bike Easy is based on Peter's experiences and it answers the questions that people ask again and again… What sort of bike should I buy? Where’s the best place to buy a bike? How do I get my kids cycling? How do I stop my bike being stolen? Where are the best places to cycle? How do I cope if the bike breaks down? Is cycling to work a realistic option for me? What help and support is available? Bike Easy covers all these topics and much more. It’s full of simple, practical advice.
