Kidical Mass family bike ride on Sunday. We’ll gather at 10 at Audubon School (3500 N Hoyne) for a 10:30 departure. It’s a free, relaxed pace neighborhood ride for all ages. We meet the first Sunday of every month April through December.

Maintenance Tips:

Give your bike a general inspection – take a look, squeeze brakes, check skewers or axle nuts, check for rattles

Check tire pressure and inflate your tires regularly to prevent flats which are the most frequent type of repair needed.

Check spokes and wheels

Apply chain lube after rain or snow or about every 2-3 weeks
