Guarantee a good start

One way to guarantee that you’ll be off to a good start on the morning of PedalPGH is to have a tuned-up bike that’s ready to roll. Visit your local bike shop to get a full tune-up to be sure your bike is in working order.

Have you checked your bike since your last ride? When was the last time you had it in the shop? Regular bicycle maintenance can prevent accidents. Here is the “ABC Quick Check,” which you should do every time before you ride.
