Check List for the First Ride of the Season

Dear AdventuRiders,

First of all, many of the Recreation Departments don't have their Spring catalogs out yet. Don't worry about signing up (yet). Come ride with us!

As I am finding all my biking stuff again I made up a checklist for you.
  1. Find your bike and dust it off, defrost it or both.
  2. No, not your spouse's bike!
  3. Make sure it fits and works properly and hasn't been hit by a snowblower.
  4. Lubing the chain is always a good idea.
  5. PUMP UP YOUR TIRES. There is no way that the tires held enough air over the Winter. Riding on low tires is no fun. As a last resort, I will have a pump with me. You should get into the habit of pumping up your tires at least once a week.
  6. See #5 - This is important for your enjoyment of the ride. Please have me pump up your tires before we leave if necessary.
  7. See #5 - If you need to use Fearless Leader's pump, please get there 15 minutes early.
  8. You MUST have an ANSI approved bicycle helmet. I have one spare, first come first served. 
  9. You will want a water bottle.
  10. You will want an assortment of layered clothing, gloves, perhaps a really thin hat. It's supposed to be just above freezing when we leave tomorrow.
  11. A signed Waiver of Liability, yes, initial all the yellow spaces too.
  12. I will have a few Waivers of Liability with me if you need one.
  13. A smile on your face, at least by the time we return.

Hope to see you there,
Bill and Carole
