Cops ridiculed over 93-page manual on how to ride a bike

Police officers have been ridiculed after drawing up a step-by-step guide to riding a bicycle.

The 93-page full-colour guide, which comes in two volumes, gives advice on how to balance so officers do not fall off.

The book, titled the Police Cycle Training Doctrine, also covers key skills such as how to brake, turn and avoid the kerb.

The guidance was drawn up by a group of cycling enthusiasts working for police forces around England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
