City cycling made simple

North America’s cities have long been the domain of the car, but thanks to the undeniable benefits of active transport, bicycles have an increasing presence in the urban landscape. Yet our cities weren’t designed for bicycles, making for intimidating, and sometimes dangerous, environments for cyclists.

The Urban Cycling Survival Guide is an accessible, straight-forward pocket guide that helps cyclists new to the urban environment negotiate all the challenges, obstacles, and rules — spoken and unspoken — that come with sharing the roads. From picking the bike that’s right for you to smart riding strategies, tips for drivers, and bike maintenance, Cycle Toronto founding executive director Yvonne Bambrick is your trusted guide.

With illustrations to help clarify even the trickiest bike situation, The Urban Cycling Survival Guide is an indispensible, attractive set of training wheels that can make anyone a confident, joyful city rider.

Yvonne Bambrick was the founding executive director of the Toronto Cyclists Union (now Cycle Toronto) and is currently working as an independent urban cycling consultant, event photographer, and coordinator of the Forest Hill Village Business Improvement Area.

Marc Ngui is a Toronto based professional creator. He studied architecture at the University of Waterloo and has pursued his passion for drawing and visualization across a wide variety of activities including illustration, comics, storyboards, animation, production design, scenic painting, videography and contemporary art exhibitions. He is one half of the eutopian art duo HappySleepy with partner Magda Wojtyra.

"This modern guide is filled with great advice that will help people become more confident and educated bike riders. For all libraries." — Library Journal
