From the very first day of joining the Mindright Endurance crew, it has felt like much more than “just a bunch of people” who get training plans from the same company. Mindright’s online forums always make me smile, their warm group welcomes to any and all newcomers are never missed, and everyone cheers each other on in every pursuit you can possibly imagine (triathlon, road races, mountain bike, gran fondos, gravel rides, first 5ks, marathons, swim events and life in general.) They have formed a unique and positive community of hardworking humans who love to have fun and play hard.
Bike maintenance can be pretty intimidating. There’s a lot of moving parts, and it can feel tough to get started.

Taking a couple minutes to learn some quick maintenance techniques can save you tons of time and hassle out on the trails or roads. Davina Jackson and Jessica Wyman of Rolling H Cycles in Nampa, Idaho have some excellent tips for the ABCD’s of basic bike maintenance that YOU (yes you!) can do before each ride in less than 5 minutes.
