Wet Weather Tips


In view of the skids I had here are some Rainy weather tips:-

Wet Weather

Wet weather cycling requires special precautions:

Braking can take up to six times longer when rims are wet. Squeeze your brakes in small, gentle spurts while you are riding (without coming to a stop) to keep your rims clean of water build up.
Puddles can hide dangerous potholes and hazards, so avoid riding through them.
Rainy weather can cause many surfaces to become extremely slippery, such as painted lines, metal bridges and railroad tracks. Take special care and dismount and cross when possible.
Corners should be taken more slowly than in dry conditions.
