Bike Maintenance

A few of the basic things to check each time you ride are:

  • Tires – Keeping proper air pressure will help you avoid flats.
  • Brakes – Check that your brakes are engaged and functioning before you ride.
  • Chain – Make sure your chain is always clean and lubed. Chains rust very quickly, especially outdoors!

It's good to carry a small repair kit with you when you ride. At the very least, have a spare tube for your tire, a pump and tire levers (these will help you remove your tire to access the tube) whenever you ride.
