Who likes to ride a dusty bike? No one. That's why spring cleaning is essential for the start of the season. Here it is recommended to simply remove dirt and dust with a damp cloth. Afterwards, silicone spray gives the paint a great shine. Small rust spots are best tackled with a little WD 40. Spray the area and remove the rust and oil with a cloth after about 24 hours.
In order to start the next tour without worries, take another close look at the safety-relevant parts of your bike. Starting with testing the braking effect and the condition of the brake pads. If these are heavily worn, they should be replaced. To see and, more importantly, be seen, make sure your lights and reflectors are clean and in good working order. Charge and test battery-powered lights appropriately. Does your bike have a flat tire? Check to see if it's due to the break in service or possibly damage. Inflate the tires and check them for cuts, punctures or wear. The spokes should also be worth a focused look. Tightened up tight, you'll ensure safety and a comfortable ride. This applies to all the bolts on your bike. Check that everything is tight. Of course, this does not affect the chain, because it should have play and tension.
