Ther 2017 riding season is off and running. Many of the weekly rides have started up and the 2017 organized ride schedules are set. You can access information on most of these rides from the Community link near the top of this page. Temperatures are an important consideration when cycling.
Remember to dress for the weather. I use leg warmers or tights below 63 degrees or so. The fluid that lubricates your knees needs the warmth to work correctly.
Remember to drink before you get thirsty even in cooler weather it is important to stay hydrated.
Plan ahead, many of the popular rides can fill up. Pick out a couple of nice rides along with the Assenmacher 100 and put them on your schedule. Set a realistic schedule and goals that are achievable.
Sign up for an early season ride and put the 2017 Assenmacher 100 on your schedule. That can help motivate you and train your way to fitness while imagining tail winds and sunny summer days
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! Keep Riding! Matt Assenmacher

Got A Flat? Get A New Tube With The Correct Valve - Bicycle inner tubes (the tube is what's inside the tire), use one of two types of valves for inflation: Schrader or Presta. Schrader valves are an exact match with the valves on car tires. They have a spring-loaded valve mechanism inside. (If this mechanism leaks or fails it can be tightened or replaced easily and for very little cost.) Presta valves seal with air pressure. They're lighter and have fewer parts so there's less to go wrong. (This type of valve can be finicky if it gets muddy or clogged with tire sealant.) Presta valves are smaller in diameter than Schraders, so they fit in rim holes made for either type. Schrader valves only fit in rim holes designed for their larger diameter. When buying a pump, be sure it will fit the valve type you have. Most today fit both valves or can easily be converted, but check to make sure.
