Every 6 years, the federal government allocates billions to expand and improve transportation infrastructure. Peopleforbikes.org will use our powerful, united voice to urge Senators and Congressmen to make new, cost-effective investments in bicycling facilities and programs that will benefit us now and well into the future. To help, please sign the pledge. By uniting we can make our world a better place to ride!
Correct Tire Pressure Improves Your Ride - Bicycle tires work best when properly inflated. Check the label on the tire to find the range of recommended pressures. For off-road tires, lower psi helps smooth rough terrain, and higher pressures increase efficiency on smoother surfaces. Don't go below the minimum or you increase the risk of a flat. Pressure too high will have you bouncing out of control on every bump in the trail. Road riders on super-smooth pavement can decrease rolling resistance with higher pressures. For rougher roads, reduce the pressure. For any type of riding, your weight, speed, and the surface conditions affect what pressure is best. Staying within the manufacturer's stated range helps you get the most from your tires. Ask us what we recommend.
