Wet Weather Riding
Everything changes when you ride on loose surfaces or in wet weather. It takes longer to stop and tire adhesion is reduced causing less cornering and braking traction. Moisture and dirt on brake pads reduces their ability to grip. Slow down when riding in wet weather and be prepared for longer stopping distances. Be aware that brake pads will wear out quicker when it is wet, so inspect them regularly this winter.
Check your bike's owners manual for more tips on braking.
