As the weather warms up, it’s time to take the trainer tire off and get your bike ready for riding outside. For many athletes, this annual ritual begins a series of repeatable habits that will continue throughout the riding season. But for those who have only been riding for a short time, it’s likely that these habits are still forming. So let’s discuss what’s important from the time you pull your bike out until the time you park it after a ride.
Enjoy riding out there! Be safe and get in the habit of being safe!
