Wet leaves on street = ice rink

1 Comment

We are having a lovely autumn and the gold and red leaves make our neighborhoods and centers even more beautiful.

On the glass-is-half-empty side, the beautiful leaves have begun to fall. And these leaves can create a safety hazard for all users.  

No matter how you're getting around, but especially if you're bicycling, please use caution:

  • Be especially careful when turning
  • Slow down
  • Please wear a bike helmet and secure it well
  • Always have your bike lights with you (and use them!)
  • Wear bright clothing

when confronted with wet leaves or ice that you can't avoid when cycling, it's time to Go Zen - get still, get light, & float on over that obstacle!
