Shifting Basics

 

Some bikes have multiple gears; operated by levers or twist grips with both hands, it can get overwhelming!

Typically your left hand will make very drastic changes, and is not needed too often in flat areas like DAVIS.

Your right hand will usually make slight changes; perfect for getting up over the freeways or through the tunnels in Davis.

On most bikes, you must be pedaling the bike forward for the gears to change.

If your bike does not shift well, or the chain constantly falls off, bring it to a shop (like B&L Bike Shop) for inspection and servicing.

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

dynamo

Another word for "generator," a dynamo is a device that produces electricity as you pedal to power your bicycle lights. Usually they are either attached to the bicycle frame and rub on the tire or they are incorporated into the front or rear hub and built into a wheel. As the wheel turns, electricity is generated.
