What is a geezer? According to that great expert on
language, Eric Partridge, it used to be a disparaging
term for old women. Ah, but come the 20th century, the
men took over. So it became a useful description for old
buffers, old codgers, old coots, and venerable galahs.
Dunstan and Hook first saw daylight in the 1920s, so they
are well fitted for the role of venerable galahs and like
top politicians they can turn their skills to any subject
without having to know to know too much about it. The Old
Geezers are thoroughly saddle worn. They have done more
than 100,000 kilometres on two wheels. They have cycled
in Europe, cycled across America, plugged their way
though rain and wind from Melbourne to Sydney and camped
in more unfortunate places than they care to describe.
The Dunstan geezer has even mixed it with 100 million
bicyclists in China. The world has seen two amazing
bicycle booms. The first was in the 1880s, when it was
absolutely the thing. The second boom took off in the
1970s, at first with very little encouragement from
politicians who thought such vehicles as irritating as
blowflies. But since then the boom has accelerated at
such a pace, no longer can the bike lover be ignored.

Interest in bicycling is growing rapidly, with worldwide industry sales up 10 to 25% per year over the past decade.

There are currently 450 million bicycles owned in the US, with over 60 million adult riders.

Interest in commuting (gas prices), health and fitness (boomers retiring), and environmental concerns (zero emissions) are converging to make bicycling a subject area of continued high growth.

This book is designed as an introduction to bicycling, and features current information along with professional quality step-by-step and identification photos.
