  • Vinnie's tips:
    • You must be very careful and aware of curbs and such
    • Strong core helps bike riding 
    • Get tires that are as wide as possible 
      • Run as low a tire pressure as possible
      • Better stability and patch
        • Patch = amount of rubber on the asphalt 


  • Always use easier gear and spin pedals faster instead of more slowly pushing a harder gear
    • Prevents knee injury 
  • If you can afford it, use a professional bike fitter
    • You want the seat to be high enough so that when the pedal is all the way at the bottom, there is still a 10ยบ bend
