Get ready to roll this Spring

In this issue: 30 Days of Biking, #coffeeoutside, women's rides resume

30 Days of Biking logo 2022
30 Days of Biking is a global initiative to ride every day in April! (We're already a week in - you can catch up by doubling your rides every few days.) Bike Fun has a suggestion for you for every day this month.

20 feet or 20 miles, it all counts as a ride. 

Join us for bicycle rides & clinics
in April!

Walk Bike Nashville & Bike Fun Adult Learn to Ride at Glenview Elementary

Adult Learn-to-Ride with Walk Bike Nashville
Sunday April 24th, 1-4p at Glenview Elementary School

Lead teaching by KJ of Bike Fun, hosted by Walk Bike Nashville. Free; bikes & helmets provided. Must register to attend. 

Spring maintenance tip

Sidewall of a tire showing the PSI requirementsBefore you head out for a ride, check to make sure your tubes are still holding air by inflating them the night before to nearly the highest PSI & checking for any slow leaks the next day.

If the tubes are holding air, you're good to go! If there's any significant pressure drop, you'll need to get those tubes replaced (& check for thorns, glass, metal in the rubber of the tire as well - otherwise, that leak will keep on happening). Better to find out before the ride than during!
