prop up a bike


Senior Member

Can you provide a general verb or phrase to describe the action you do to make the bike stable and upright when it is not ridden?

For a bike without a kickstand, I think "propping up" a bike is acceptable, but for a bike with a kickstand, can I use "prop up" too?

Is it OK to say this?

(Dad talked to the boy sitting on the rear rack) Get down from the bike and let me prop it up.

Thank you very much!
