Pump up your bike

Posted on 12 June 2017

We're installing bicycle pumps around campus - find out where your nearest pump is and keep your tires topped up.

The bike pump outside Wentworth.

Keeping your tyres properly pressurised makes it easier to pedal and helps tires last longer. We've installed eight new bicycle pumps around campus to help you keep your tires full.

A firm tire will have better grip on the road and can help prevent your inner tube being caught between the rim and the road and can prevent damage to the rim of your wheel.

These pumps are powerful and easy to operate, with clear instructions on the side. They have a pressure gauge on top so you can make sure you're getting the right amount of air for what your bike needs.

If you're not sure what pressure to fill your tires to, it should say on the side of your tire.
