Planning your first ride of the year and you could use a reminder

by Ruth Kaser for Cycling Articles

The sun is out,you’ve checked over your bicycle and you plan on going for a ride. But wait, you forgot what you learned about shifting and what you do remember is that embarrassing incident that happened with your chain.

Starting up in a too high or hard gear, learning to anticipate shifting to an easier or lower gear takes practice. While you are always welcome to stop by the shop for reminder tips, we are not always open.

Worry not, as The League of American Bicyclists and RD Bike Shop thought of your need. The League of American Bicyclists prepared this short, helpful video about shifting gears. Watch it as a reminder and please let us and the League of American Bicyclists know if you found it to be a helpful video.
