Important information about bikes: Bikes must be in good riding condition and have recently had the ABC's looked over and tended to:

  • A is for Air: Having properly inflated tires helps prevent flats. Check the sidewall of your tire for the recommended tire pressure. Before you ride, make sure you have your patch kit and pump with you.
  • B is for Brakes: Squeeze your front and rear brake levers to make sure that the brakes engage properly and smoothly.
  • C is for Chain: Look at your chain and all the gears. Keeping your chain lubricated and everything clean will ensure your bike shifts easier and the drivetrain last longer.

Please keep dogs at home.
