Walk & Roll Safety Tip: Check your bike ABCs If it has been a while since you’ve been on your bike, check your bike ABCs before your ride to make sure it is in shape to ride. Keeping your bike in good order makes it easier to ride. This video describes how to perform your ABC Quick Chieck.
Air- inflate tires to the recommended PSI stamped on the edge of your bicycle tire.

Two outcasts leave humanity for the kingdom of the birds seeking happiness. Instead, they hatch a scheme to turn the skies into a powerful utopia – if they can overcome the wrath of the Greek gods. Don Zolidis updates Aristophanes’s ancient comedy, showing that its satirical take on society, politics and religion is just as relevant today. Tickets ($15 adults, $10 students/seniors) at palytheatre.com/tickets or the box office. Recommended for ages 6+ for some crude humor and mild innuendo.
