Get Ready For Summer Cycling
May 29, 2012
Whether you’re a casual rider or a serious cyclist, there are some important steps to take before you hit the trails and streets this summer.
If it’s been awhile since you last used your bike, you may want to do a quick tune-up to ensure it’s in great shape for riding. Check for loose parts, inflate your tires, and lube the chain. Ensure your quick release levers on your wheels are closed and that your brakes work.
Don’t leave the house without testing your rear and front lights. You don’t want to be caught after dark without working lights.
Now your bike is ready for an outing! Don’t forget to wear a helmet, apply plenty of sunscreen, and keep yourself hydrated.
