Be Prepared for Wet Weather!
The weather may not cooperate. Here are Some things to keep in mind if it doesn’t:
- Roads might be slippery in spots. Use extreme caution when going downhill and around sharp turns. Also keep in mind that stripes and other road markings tend to be slicker than asphalt. Check your tires to ensure that you have treads suitable for wet conditions.
- Puddles may be deeper than they appear. Ride with caution.
- Some riders might be wearing wet or fogged-up glasses or goggles, and their visibility may be reduced — so pass carefully and signal to riders behind you when stopping or slowing down.
- Dress appropriately with waterproof layers, covering your extremities. Not sure what you need? Someone at Bike Expo New York can hook you up.
