PPA members will receive a 15% discount on the SA Bike Book and Events Guide, written by Ride editor Tim Brink.
The book will introduce you to the origins of the humble bicycle, as well as key safety and cycling regulations and tips on staying alive. As a cyclist knowing your equipment and the anatomy of your bike is important. This book gives you all the information you require on how to buy the correct bike, the variety of bikes on the market, how the various options differ, and how many different ones you need to covet, rather than need.
Other chapters include the gear (kitting yourself out properly), the workshop (how to care for your bike), setup and skills (basic set-up, road skills and MTB skills) as well as training and nutrition (the basics, recovery, injury and illness). The last chapter focuses on top events highlighting the top 5 road races and MTB races and other popular cycle races, uniquely African races, DIY and the ultras.
