This morning was the first of the real frost, steamy breath, and unfortunately slippier roads. Therefore, here are a few tips to keep you riding safely through the winter:
- Take corners a lot more slowly, and start off slowly from a standstill. It takes a while for you to get used to less grip on the road surface so be prepared for this.
- Slightly more obvious one but be over prepared, rather than under with layers. It is less annoying to stuff a scarf/extra jumper in your bag than it is to be riding with a freezing neck/hands/torso.
- Just as being cautious starting off, brake slowly, try to avoid braking really hard and suddenly and allow more distance between you and the vehicle in front.
- Be wary of features on the road- markings, grates any painted surface as they tend to be more slippery- for this reason: be careful going through junctions.
