    There is some discussion about “Cold Tires” what’s the best way to warm up tires before a ride? If you are going on a morning ride with some friends, how long and best way to warm tires for the ride.

    Acceleration and braking. The goal is to flex the carcass of the tire to build heat, and the most effective way to do that is to accelerate and brake (building up some good pressure doing both) in a straight line a few times. Just remember the “first and last five” rule still applies!
