January Safety Tip - Beware of Debris and Wet Leaves

Wed, January 01, 2020 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 rain at this time of year, we often ride shortly after a day with heavy rain. During this season, there are often places with wet leaves on the ground that are SLIPPERY! In 2018, a club member broke her hip after taking a fall caused by sliding out while running over a clump of wet leaves. 2018 also saw the tragic passing of member Troy Folkner after a crash caused by an errant stick in the bike lane. After a rainy day or while riding through damp conditions, be especially careful around wet leaves or other debris on the road.
