How to Put Air in Bicycle Tires
It is important to know how to put air in your bicycle tires because they can go flat overnight and make it difficult to ride.
If you don’t know how to put air in your bicycle tires, you could end up stranded somewhere or having to walk your bike home.
Here is a step-by-step guide on how to put air in your bicycle tires.
What You Need:
- A bike pump
- An air gauge (optional)
The first thing you need to do is locate your bike pump. If you don’t have a bike pump, you can buy one at a local sporting goods store or online.
Once you have located your bike pump, unscrew the cap from the valve stem on your tire. If you have an air gauge, attach it to the valve stem now.
Start pumping air into the tire until it is at the desired pressure. If you don’t have an air gauge, a good rule of thumb is to pump the tire until it is firm to the touch.
Once the tire is firm, remove the air gauge (if using) and replace the cap on the valve stem. That’s it! You’ve successfully put air into your bicycle tires.
Now that you know how to put air in your bicycle tires, you’ll be prepared the next time they go flat.
This simple task can save you from being stranded or having to walk your bike home. Just remember to always carry a bike pump with you when you ride!
