Bicycle Maintenance Important Safety Tip

If you aren't checking up on your bicycle's maintenance regularly, you are taking your life in your hands. The chance of having an accident goes up remarkably

Do basic bike maintenance every 4 - 6 months.

If you are using your bicycle daily you will want to have it checked once every 2 or 3 months, possibly by a professional bicycle mechanic who can check it properly.

OTHER CYCLING SAFETY TIPS

* Maneuver your bike effectively.

* Determine the best place on the road to ride.

* Communicate with other road users.

* Check your bike for safety.

* Adjust your bike to fit you.

* Choose equipment and clothing.

* Plan the best routes.

* Handle weather and riding at night.

* Don't tailgate other cyclists or cars.

* Be wary of potholes, bumps or crevices.

* Don't show off to your kids or wife by being a dumbass.

SELL YOUR OLD BIKE

If your bicycle is basically junk and you don't know what to do with it then SELL IT TO ME. I will use it for parts. I will give you a fair price ($20 to $30) for your old clunker just so I can rip it apart for parts.

If you need repairs check out my Bicycle Mechanic Services in Leaside Toronto.
