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!

Presta-Valve Basics - Before you can put air in a Presta valve, you must remove the plastic valve cap (if there is one) and unscrew the very tip of the valve. Look closely and you'll see that the valve's tip is knurled to make it easy to turn by hand. Unscrew it (counterclockwise) and then press the tip down until some air escapes. This is important because it frees the valve, which usually sticks after being sealed for a while. Until you free it, it can be difficult to impossible to put air into the valve.
We have the gear to keep you riding inside and outside, too. From trainers and rollers to warm clothing and lights, we have the cycling accessories you need to stay on your bike this winter. Stop by the shop and we'll show you our favorites!
