    1. This book actually changed my life. For a solid month before the weather turned cold, I rode the 12 miles to work along country back roads and enjoyed an experience unlike any other: the world via the seat of a bicycle. The author didn't push me into making this huge decision, or provide any earth-shattering evidence, but she opened up the possibilities and helped me see a whole variety of opportunities I'd never considered before, and she gave a lot of excellent practical advice along the way!I [...]

    2. The book, Hello, Bicycle by Anna Brones really is a helpful guide about bikes! You can learn so much if you just bought one, plan on buying one, or maybe just have a few already. I feel it covers everything from your first purchase of the bike, what to look for and custom features you may want, plus the way to ride, lock, store, maintain the bike and traveling. It really takes you to everything about a bike and it's wonderful uses and designs. I really love how simple this makes it, to learn abo [...]

It’s been over forty years since I learned how to ride a bike. These days, taking a long ride is one of the most enjoyable things I do.Hello Bicycle: An Inspired Guide to the Two-Wheeled Life, by Anna Brones explores the many-faceted world of cycling. The first thing that readers will notice is the extraordinary layout of the bo [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this guide to bike riding! Bicycling is such a huge movement right now. Bike lanes are popping up more and more in cities, people are choosing to bike more to work, and events like the slow roll in Detroit, or Critical Mass, are gaining more bicyclists every month. It is also an up and coming industry, with specialty bike shops opening up all over the map. Detroit, the Motor City itself, has quite a few, such as Shinola Bikes and Wheelhouse Detroit. This book was a great read fo [...]

    5. Lately, I've noticed more and more people out and about on their bicycles. My city has also recently introduced a bike share program and it wouldn't surprise me if dedicated bicycle lanes spring up next in the town. For this reason, I was drawn to this book, wondering if I should dare to take up bike riding myself.It seems strange to think that as children most of us, myself included, practically lived on our bikes, riding around the neighborhood with no fear of traffic, rain or anything else fo [...]

    6. You can also find this review at Texan Girl Reads aka texangirlreads17/Hello, Bicycle is a fun filled guide to what having a bicycle is like! It's the perfect handbook to learn how to take care of your bike, how to commute to work or school and what it is like to travel with your bike. If you are new to the bike world or someone who just want to learn more about the bike world, then this is the book for you!!For me, this is more of a book geared toward someone who just received their first bike [...]

    7. This compact little book was, for the most part, a wonderful read for the bicycle enthusiast. It is packed with a plethora of bike-related advice, facts, (charming!) illustrations, resource lists, recipes, activities, careers, etc. It seems to at least touch on – if not thoroughly cover – almost any subject or question that might come to the mind of a cyclist. Best suited for those just starting out. A great encouragement to just get on and ride! There were some negatives. First, the author [...]

    8. There is no denying that this book is cute. It's a cute size, cute colors, and cute graphics. But this is the kind of book you get as a gift from someone who shelf-browsed at Barnes and Nobles and then never pick up again. I genuinely wanted to know how to fix various problems on my bike, or at least understand them so I could take it in to the shop using proper lingo. Instead, there were barely related topics such as snack recipes to give you "fuel", and topics that would have been interesting [...]

    9. This book wants to take you back to the thrill of your first ride. To the joy of riding a bike, whether it's actually your first ride or your going on your daily commute.This book includes a history of the bicycle (velocipedes and penny-farthings included) as well as information for the modern day rider. All of this is done in an entertaining but rather shallow manner (none of the information is super-in-depth.) However, the information is fairly wide-ranging up to and including the obvious how [...]

    10. A disappointing book that tells little about bicycles, usually in the most abstract manner. For example, bicycle parts are listed and described in the text but not indicated in a drawing to help novices identify them. On the other hand, there are recipes for food on might enjoy on a cycling excursion and instructions for self-made jewellery from discarded bicycle parts. All the book does is promote cycling as a lifestyle choice, especially for women, using arguments that seem rather flat, in a l [...]

    11. I love this book! As a newbie to the "two wheeled life", this book is a perfect starting point. It gives tips on selecting the perfect bike for you and how to add both fun and practical accessories. For the more experienced bikers, there is info on DIY repair and maintenance for your bike, as well as tips on becoming a full time bike commuter. There are crafts using the bicycle tubes, planning trips and picnics around your bike, and cycling with children. This book was very well planned out by a [...]

    12. 2.5 stars Just okay, a lot of fluff/useless info for the typical cyclist. I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review. Full review: faithfullymoonstruck.wordpres
