Bicycle: Pre-ride checklist

Do you quickly check over your bike before you ride? If not, you should be. Doing so could save you from serious problems on the road. In fact, had I not gone over this checklist before my last ride I would not have had front brakes. You also wouldn’t want to make your ride any harder by having your brake continuously rubbing against your rim—although your legs may get stronger as you push to keep your normal pace—this causes your pads and rims to wear quickly. And you really wouldn’t want the annoyance of having gears slip while pedaling, especially uphill. So use this pre-ride checklist every time you get ready to jump on your bike and ride. Happy cycling! 💜
