The leaves are beginning to turn and the weather no longer feels like summer.
There are easy precautions to make enjoying autumnal beauty on foot or bike a safe experience:
- Wear bright clothing.
- If you're biking, slow down.
- Be especially careful when turning: wet leaves can be very slick.
- Always have your bike lights with you. Consider using a blinky light or reflectors when walking
- If you're biking, please wear a bike helmet and secure it well.
