Beginner Bike Basics with Bill Nye the Science Guy
Diamondback Bicycles enlisted the help of childhood hero, Bill Nye the Science Guy, for a series of videos explaining bike basics to cycling newcomers. In this new series “Let’s Ride with Bill Nye”, the science guy covers everything from the formula for getting the correct bike size for your body to the science behind shifting. Nye also shares his list of the top bike essentials, a pre-ride checklist, and tips for proper bike etiquette. The information in this series is intended for novice riders, but is a great brush up for the intermediates. We’ve added a few of our favorite videos from the series, but you can learn and watch more of the “Let’s Ride with Billy Nye” series on the Diamondback website.
At Diamondback we like to think bikes are pretty simple, but we’ve been living and breathing them for 40 years,” said Steve Westover, director of marketing for Diamondback, “We realize that for many people getting into cycling can be intimidating, so we reached out to our friend Bill Nye for help. In this series Bill breaks down the basics of biking into easy-to-understand segments, bringing his trademark humor and style to each.
