Streets Ahead: CTC's classic cycle commuting guide
Cycle travel is reliable and satisfying. It gets you exactly where you want to go with the minimum of stress and complication and the added bonus of a little gentle exercise.
While others head for the gym, you can have your cake and eat it: moderate cycling burns 300 calories an hour – so a half-hour each way commute earns you a guilt-free slice of gateaux.
Streets Ahead - CTC's Guide to Cycling to Work has been inspiring people to cycle-commute ever since it was first published in 2005. It includes the stories of a number of cycle commuters (business, novice, family and long-distance), plus lots of advice on skills, route-finding and the benefits of a daily commute by cycle.
