Bicycling & the Law is a must read for anyone that rides a bicycle on public roads in the U.S. In the book, author Bob Mionske (former pro cyclist, Velo News columnist, and lawyer specializing in cycling law) lays out cyclists’ rights and responsibilities in a comprehensive and comprehensible manner. Bicycling & the Law was clearly written by a cyclist, for cyclists.
Topics covered include: rights and duties; accidents; insurance; harassment; theft; defective products; and liability waivers. I found the section on social bias against cyclists particularly interesting (Mionske recently wrote about this in an article for Velo News).
