Bike commuting tip: pump up first thing in the morning
Joyce Park stashed this in Bike commuting tips
The number one tip my bike shop gave me is to keep the tires inflated properly. My addition to that is to pump them up first thing in the morning rather than right before you plan to ride off. That way when you find a flat you'll have time to fix it or make other plans for the day. There is nothing worse than having to fix a flat tire for the first time when you're panicked about being late to work!
