As a primary sponsor and technical support provider for the N.I.T.E. Ride since 1998, Bicycle Garage Indy has seen it all when it comes to bike problems. The N.I.T.E. Ride attracts all types of riders, and even experienced riders who bring along non-riding family members will find surprises when they arrive at the Major Taylor Velodrome.
To help you out, here is a quick checklist of the most common things we see in the hours leading up to start, and out on the N.I.T.E. Ride route. So check your bike, and your car before you leave the house, to insure you can spend the evening RIDING the N.I.T.E. Ride
On your bike:
- Air up bicycle tires
- Check Tires for holes, cracks
- Check Brakes
- Check Shifting
- Lube Bike Chain
- Lights and Batteries
And don’t forget to pack:
- Water bottle
- Riding Shoes
- Did we mention "Air up bicycle tires"?
And if your best intentions and plans fail, look for the Bicycle Garage Indy Tents at the Velodrome. We will have our "Got Air" station, mechanics for quick bike checks, and merchandise for new (and forgetful) riders.
