The 2017 riding season is off and running. The weekly rides have all started, 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

The Chain Tool: An Essential Take-Along For Off-Road Riding - Because a broken chain can quickly ruin a ride and force a long walk home, the most valuable tool in your seat pack when you're trail biking might just be the chain tool. The chain on an off-road rig is susceptible to damage due to the excess wear dirt puts on the links and the greater opportunity for foreign objects like sticks and rocks to beat on the chain. But, as long as you're packing your chain tool (they're small and inexpensive), should your chain separate or a link get damaged, you can simply remove the wrecked link and rejoin the chain to continue riding. Remember though, that the chain is now shorter so avoid using your large chainring in combination with the larger cogs on your rear sprockets because this can jam the drivetrain. Also, if your chain requires a special replacement pin for repairs, as many do, always carry a spare or two in your seat bag (tape them to your chain tool so you don't lose them).
