on biking + tips on how to care for your bike

fun activities for children, games for little children, my favorite things

Biking is probably one of the most enjoyable thing to do, that was why I was so happy when my titoΒ + titasΒ gave me one for my birthday last year. I was so excited to learn how to ride it + would ask mum to help me take it out to the garage where I can ride almost every single day. Even though I was still quite small to learn how to ride a bike at that time, mum would patiently teach me how to pedal + would push me around the garage just so I can have a feel of how it is like to actually ride a bike. Biking, or cycling as what others call it, is also a perfect form of exercise as you work out your leg muscles, as well as your arms and hands as you ride.

Unfortunately, after a year of using my bike, the Lightning McQeen bike seat just gave in + snapped. Mum is not sure whether we can still have it repaired or if we need to buy a new one, which might take a while as these bikes do not come cheap. It was really sad that I can no longer ride my bike. I would really love how to learn how to pedal + am so much willing to practice everyday to finally learn how to do it.

Oh well, I hope you have more luck with your bikes than I did. Here are a few tips on how you can take care of your bike so you can use it for years and years to come:

  1. Stash your bike in a Bike storageΒ when not in use, to ensure that it is in a-okay condition + to ward off potential danger or damage
  2. Inflate your tires properly before riding to prevent untimely tire damage and to ensure your safety while riding your bike
  3. Keep your bike day to prevent rust from damaging the metal parts of your bike. When it accidentally gets wet while you are riding, make sure to dry it up before you stash it away
  4. Oil your bike’s pedals + chains as these moving parts tend to grind on each other when not well oiled.

  4. i remember when i was a kid that my parents gave me a bike. and the next day, i’ve been vigorously playing at the street.. with many stumbles and falls. hahaha
