Whether you are a cycling commuter, the parent of a child with their first two-wheeler, a recreational rider, or a racer, the chances are you will need this book. In this second edition of Every Cyclist’s Guide to Canadian Law, Christopher Waters, a law professor and cycling advocate, provides a comprehensive overview of the Canadian law on bicycles. The book covers rules of the road, purchasing and using bikes, what to do in the case of a crash or a stolen bike, starting up your own cycling club, racing your bike, and much more.
Accessibly written and occasionally humorous, this book is written for those with little or no legal background. Using straightforward and jargon-free explanations, the author includes anecdotes and examples drawn from his own experience as a seasoned commuter and recreational cyclist. Every Cyclist’s Guide to Canadian Law, 2e will also provide an authoritative reference for lawyers, advocates, club directors, and coaches.
