Stir-crazy Cyclists and Idle Bikes

By: Emi (Dacian) Garhartt

So you've decided, its time to pull that bike out of the shed, garage, basement, or perhaps even the void because;

"I've gotta get some exercise, fresh air and get out of the house."

Fantastic! You are taking a great step towards helping yourself reduce stress and improve cardio! Cycling is good for your joints and mental health to boot!

But, uh oh. That thing is probably not safe or ready to ride. You notice the bike has flat tires, rusty and/or frayed cables and maybe something looks bent the wrong way.
