Spring is here which means warmer weather, longer daytime hours and more time outside on your bike! Whether you spent the winter months on your trainer, riding outside in the cold temperatures, or not riding at all it’s always a good idea to give your bike a little love. At Bike Mart, we know the fun is in the ride, so we’ve put together a spring essentials guide to get you rolling into spring.
We all know that the winter months can take a serious toll on your bike. Now is the perfect time to get rid of any dirt or grime and get your bike ready. Don’t want to clean your bike? Feel free to drop your bike off at any of our six convenient locations.
Rain or Shine: Texas Weather
Spring weather in Texas is unpredictable at times. Occasional rainstorms and chilly headwinds are worthy of ruining a ride. Make your rainy or windy ride more comfortable and rewarding by bringing a light jacket or vest. Riding in the morning when it’s a little chilly? Leg and arm warmers are the answer for you! When the temperature rises over your ride, removable warmers and convertible jackets can help make your ride even more enjoyable.
Stop and Smell the Roses: Have Peace of Mind
With the weather warming up, we find ourselves finding any excuse to get on our bikes! No matter the length of your ride, have peace of mind that you have the accessories you need in your saddlebag to hop on your bike any time. We recommend you carry the following:
- Spare Tube
- Tire Levers
- Mini-Pump/CO2 Cartridges
- Tire/Tube Patch
Spring Forward: Being Seen When Time Changes
Daytime running lights take you from dark through dawn or dusk to dark with no problem. We’ve all been out on a ride when the forecast and the reality of the weather don’t line up. Or your ride went longer than expected and suddenly you’re out on a trail with weather you didn’t prepare for. Daytime lights can increase your safety when riding.
