You're not still driving everywhere are you? Leave the car home and take the bike instead and you'll escape high gas prices, traffic and parking hassles. Plus, you can go at your own pace, stop whenever and wherever you want, and actually have fun, and even get some exercise while you're getting things done!
CO2 Safety - Take extra precautions using CO2 inflators on Presta valves that have replaceable cores. The drastic pressure drop as the CO2 leaves the cartridge super-cools the cartridge and the adapter. In damp weather, this can freeze the adapter to the valve. And when you unscrew the adapter, you end up extracting the valve core with it, deflating the tube you just inflated. Argh! To prevent this, use this trick: After inflation, squirt the valve with some water from your water bottle to de-ice things and then carefully remove the adapter from the valve.
Your tires are inflated, your helmet is strapped on, now where do you ride? Just scroll through a few of our favorites on the left! Or, if you know of a better ride, just add it to Map My Ride's database and we'll all be able to try it. Enjoy!
