January’s Safety Tip – Beware of Wet Leaves!

Tue, January 01, 2019 9:00 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

If you are like me, you tend not to ride on days when it is raining. But with all the rainy days at this time of year, we often ride after a day with heavy rain. At this time of year, there are places with wet leaves on the ground that are SLIPPERY! Late in the fall, we had a club member break her hip after taking a fall caused by sliding out while running over a clump of wet leaves. So, after a rainy day, or while riding through a damp canyon, be especially careful around wet leaves on the road.
