Kick stands were up as we headed to our first group ride of the year on Sunday April 30th. Our founder Michelle led the group in a yearly "How to prepare for the road" class to help all of us better understand what is needed when preparing yourself and your bike for a ride. It was an informative hour talk which covered things such as:
Brakes- what to look for and how to know its time to change them.
Chains- how to maintain them
Tire pressure- how to check it and why its so important.
Light check- making sure everything turns on.
Oil- when to change and how to check it.
Also covered was gear and importance of having the right kind, tool kits and necessary items to have, and much more.
The ladies headed to Monroe CT on a scenic ride and of course held the monthly meeting to talk everything bike and club.
