I'll have to check out my local book store. Does it cover everything on cycling or just the actual riding around part? I mean does it also have the history of cycling and general info or is it just performance based?

I didn't read it cover to cover I skiped around looking at things I wanted to, so I don't know about history but it covers just about every thing I want to know, including , Ten places you ought to ride at least once , It does go into some things like the 6 day bike race and outhers, how to fit your bike, how to buy a bike , setting up your bike, It is pertty complete.

I've had the Bicycling for Dummies book for a couple years now, and I intend on keeping it handy; it's an excellent reference.

The Park Repair Manual is also excellent.
