Get out and ride!

Get out and ride!

This is it! Riding season is here! Get those bike tires pumped up and take advantage of the weather.   

The 2015 season is is full swing and the weekly rides are all rolling. You can join many of the local rides including the Friends of the Flint River Trail and the Genesee Wanderers.  Check out this link to our ride calendar or stop by the store to pick up a calendar or a new trail map.

In all weather and temperatures it is important to stay hydrated. It is important to drink while you are riding. On longer rides always eat before you get hungry and drink before you get thirsty. It is much better to maintain energy and fluid levels then to try and recover after they are depleted. I try to drink at least one water bottle per hour and more when it is warm out.

The cell phone is one of the most significant improvements in cycling safety ever! Have yours with you on all rides.  Keep it charged and have the phone numbers you need at hand.  If you have a smart phone learn to use the navigation features and other apps that will help you stay on course and in touch.  Many smart phones have tracking features, have someone close to you have their device set up to track you.  In an emergency a couple of key strokes will pin point your location instantly.

Keep your your bicycle in shape. Be prepared for the unexpected. Check your tires regularly for wear and damage. Keep them inflated to the correct pressure for the type of riding you are doing.  Make sure that you have a spare tube, pump, and you know how to use them.   Always carry your cell phone!

Today's Tip

Grease Be Gone - For getting the grease and grime off your hands after doing roadside bike repairs, carry a little hand cleaner (paste types work well) and a small rag to scrub your hands. A great way to carry cleaner is to pack it into an empty film container and stow it in your seatbag.

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

chainwheel

Also called a "chainring," this is the sprocket(s) attached to the crank. Multiply the number of chainwheels by the number of cogs (on the rear wheel) to determine the total number of gears on a bike. For example, some modern road bikes have 3 chainwheels and 11 cogs for a total of 33 gears!
