As a volunteer at our local library I get first crack at books and audio visual materials that need to be sorted for the next book sale. The box I have set aside for choice finds is overflowing with cycling books about epic cycling adventures like the fastest cycle around the world or cycling in search of the perfect meal. My latest find is a book called Smart Cycling and just skimming through a few random pages, I found a simple explanation for setting up a rear derailleur. Or is that derailler?
To me, winter cycling is more about getting from place A to place B, so I find myself delving into the written word about cycling trips (usually in hot sunny places). It was with a lot of joy that I strutted back from the mailbox the other day when I discovered curled up in my pigeon hole the latest copy of Adventure Cyclist magazine. Splashed throughout its pages were colourful photos of cyclists enjoying the fall colours in rural USofA. I going to do some curling up myself.
