Riding a bike is a healthy and low impact way to get outside for recreation and transportation, but if you haven't ridden your bike in years or are teaching children to ride for the first time there are some basics you will want to know. Before getting started on the road or on the trail catch up on these basic skills, safety info and bike tips.

ABC Quick Check
Before each ride it is important to do a quick check to make sure your bicycle is in safe riding condition. Performing an ABC Quick Check each time you ride will make sure you have a safe and enjoyable ride:
- A = AIR
- B = Breaks
- C = Chain and cranks
- Quick = Quick releases on your tires and seat
- Check = Check it over!
