“Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
Identifying slippery winter riding hazards is our subject this month. Learn what to be aware of and how to deal with it.
How to deal with these slippery hazards- Always be cautious and alert. Watch the surface conditions carefully as they are subject to change as you ride along. As you approach a nasty area, slow down or coast at a speed you are comfortable with. Keep both hands on the handlebars, and your bike as upright (vertical) as possible. Don’t attempt a turn, if at all possible, when riding over the suspect spot. If you must make a turn, try to do it in two segments, i.e., make a shallow turn before you cross the spot and then a second shallow turn after leaving the spot. If crossing railroad tracks, try to align your crossing path as perpendicular to the rails as possible. Keep your front wheel pointed straight ahead to avoid any turn, until you are safely across the tracks, on the other side.--Ride Safe and Tail Winds, Capt. Billy
