ABC Quick Check for a Safe Ride


Watch Community Cycles volunteer Hilary demonstrate these steps for a safe ride. Complete these steps whether it’s your first ride of the season or your 100th.

  • Air: Take two fingers and gently squeeze both front and rear tires.
  • Brakes: Squeeze both brakes and be sure they’re working.
  • Chain: A quick visual inspection of your chain will show you if your chain is off. Now’s a great time to lubricate your chain.
  • Quick Release: Check quick releases on your wheels to be sure they’re tight.
