Spring Check Up
Just like many of us go to our doctors for an annual physicals, even if we don't feel sick, it is also a great idea to run your bike through a check up at the beginning of the riding season.
Many people take their bicycle to their local bike shop, or ask a more experienced rider to take a look at their bike. This may be the best solution for a beginner, but if you have been riding for awhile, it may be a good idea to try to learn a few of these skills for yourself.
There are many ways to pick up these skills (books, YouTube, websites, and friends) it can help you become a more comfortable rider if you don't have to worry about being stranded if you have a problem with your tires, chain or brakes. While you may still want to have a professional look it over every now and the, we challenge you to learn at least one repair this May!
