“In the good old summertime” as the warmer weather takes hold of things our thoughts turn to becoming more active out-of-doors: barbecues on our decks and patios; playing baseball on the neighborhood sand lots; family picnics in nearby parks; walking about local neighborhoods; and of course, for the more adventurous among us bicycling all over creation.
Remember before you do take the cycle out of the moth balls and into the streets to ensure your cycle and you are ready for the roads ahead.
Wear the proper head-gear and inspect your vehicle for correct tire pressure, spoke alignment and bring a water bottle in case you get thirsty along the way.

Distant locations require that you and your bike can go the distance.
Be safety conscious and observe the rules of the road.
And above all have fun! — gc
