Instantly acquire all the knowledge you need to pass as an expert in the world of cycling. Never again confuse a MAMIL with a MTBER, a fixie with a folder, or a Boris bike with a ‘bonk’. Bask in the admiration of your fellow bike enthusiasts as you pronounce confidently on the difference between a hobbyhorse and a draisienne, and know exactly what position to take on the contentious issue of whether cyclists should be obliged to pay road tax. Most of all, effortlessly learn how to puncture countless modern cycling myths (not to mention more than a few tyres).

Written by experts and offering readers the opportunity to pass off appropriated knowledge as their own, the Bluffer’s Guides provide hard fact masquerading as frivolous observation in one witty, easy read. 
 

Rob Ainsley enrolled in the University of Life at the start of the 1960 academic year. He is currently heading for a third. He read maths at Oxford and his tutors had to admit they were surprised when he passed his finals in 1982. Most of them thought he’d been studying something else. He grew up in Hull and is a regular contributor to Cycle (CTC magazine) and Cycling Plus, wrote the guidebook 50 Quirky Bike Rides (Eye Books) and is a cycling blogger (www.realcycling.co.uk) and Twitterer (@realcycling).
