A 93-page reminder: How London cops learn to ride

This guy must read fast.

They say you never forget how to ride a bicycle.  Well, that doesn’t mean that a 93-page booklet won’t refresh your memory.  The Guardian is reporting that London “bobbies” (that’s “English” for officers) can now rely on a hefty guide to teach them the ins and outs of riding a bicycle.  Important topics covered include: turning corners, avoiding curbs, braking, and remembering to eat and drink (I assume a second edition will address trackstands, colour coordiation, and the campy vs shimano vs NJS debate).

Boris Johnson, London’s super-mayor, who just recently pursued (on his bicycle) a group of local thugs harassing a noted environmentalist, questioned the cost of producing this guide.

You get on and you pedal.  It’s not rocket science.
