Time for Spring Cleaning

spring_cleaningWarmer weather has finally returned to Michigan, and the urge to go for a bike ride is strong! Make sure your bike is as ready as you are, with a good spring cleaning.

Armed with soap and water, sponges and brushes, you can do this job yourself. The portable stand pictured was less than 100 bucks, and makes the job even easier. And an online search or a copy of Zinn & the Art of (Road or Mountain) Bike Maintenance will give you all the information you need to clean your bike, and to perform those very important periodic equipment inspections that will help to keep you safe on the roads and trails.

Or you can drop in to your local bike shop, and the friendly folks there will have your bike ready to start another great season of riding in no time at all!
