Bruce Wynkoop’s how-to book RE-Cycling: Taking up Bicycling Again as an Adult (published by AuthorHouse) is a primer on how to take up cycling as an adult. It explains buying the bike, rules of the road, where to ride (bike trails, county roads, high-traffic roads), equipment for more comfortable and safe riding, and more.

“This book is not for the put-your-head-down-and-ride-like-the-wind-while-only-seeing-the-pavement-and-the-tire-in-front-of-you-rider,” Wynkoop writes. “It is a primer for adults who want to get back to cycling but have been putting it off because they are unsure of how to go about it.”

Wynkoop averages 2,500 miles on his bikes a season, and has ridden numerous cross-state bike rides, both organized rides and self-supported rides with just a couple of friends. He has ridden The Natchez Trace in Mississippi, The Great River Road from St. Paul to St. Louis, Missouri, The Katy Trail in Missouri, The George Mickelson Trail in the Black Hills of South Dakota, The Chesapeake & Ohio Canal Towpath in Maryland, around Lake Champlain in Vermont and New York, through northern Holland and inside Theodore Roosevelt, Yellowstone, Teton, and Badlands National Parks.

Wynkoop wants his readers to feel welcome on the roads of America, wishing to “… point out that one does not have to be a spandex-wearing, cross-country, cycling maniac to enjoy and benefit from bike riding.”

About the Author
Bruce Wynkoop is a 63-year-old retired St. Paul, Minnesota police officer who took up bicycling to stay in shape after jogging began hurting his knees. Starting with short rides and working up to longer ones, he soon came to enjoy cycling so much he was surprised more people don’t do it. He considers himself a “serious-casual” cyclist who rides for exercise and pleasure, not for ego, and says, “I don’t ride fast, but I can ride all day.” In 2010 he and one friend rode, self-supported, 4,250 miles across the United States on the TransAmerica Bicycle Trail.
