    So I'm thinking about getting a copy of this book.
    Is there much difference between the editions? I can get a 2002 edition for example. The 2007 edition appears to have around 50 more pages and is actually called "Cyclecraft: The Complete Guide to Safe and Enjoyable Cycling for Adults and Children". The 2002 seems to be for Adults only. Which is it best to go for? I've even seen a 1988 version, which I presume is going to be really outdated now.

    This is true. I bought my copy from the XXX Sex shop.

    I think the penultimate copy should suffice, but according to their website, the new version is cheaper:

    The latest version has some information relating to Bikeability training for children. Personally owning two different versions I prefer the previous one slightly....

    but they are pretty close to each other I would say.

    Do remember not to read it WHILE cycling.
     
  5. Why does it say you shouldn't in the book?

    Not much mate, sadly. I've really been out of sorts the last little while. Not much work either, and I had to cancel all of last weekend thanks to the lurgy.

    How's the job going? Still enjoying the Mile End Road?
     
  12. Hopefully one day it will come to the last trip down the Mile End Road and I will be able to laugh and look back at all the experiences I have had down there.

    Get well soon mate.I've been off annual leave back tomorrow.

    I ended up getting the 2nd hand 2002 copy off Amazon marketplace as it was cheaper (It has arrived today!).
    Care to enlighten us what your quote is :biggrin:

    Something along the lines of "I fully and unequivocally endorse hi-viz and helmet wearing as a major contribution to road safety".

    LOLOL! Bit of a problem, seeing as John Franklin doesn't think that either.
