Riding in the Rain

Riding in wet conditions affects your bike's handling.

Remember these wet-weather cycling tips:

  • Allow more time for breaking
  • Sewer covers, grates and traffic lane striping are slippery when wet. Avoid braking or turning while on them.
  • Avoid puddles which may hide potholes or other road-surface irregularities that can cause you to lose control
  • Keep your bike tuned for winter riding - inspect brake pads, cables and tires
  • Rain is usually accompanied by decreased viability, so take appropriate precautions
