Just can’t wait, the riding season is about to start in ernest!

Just can’t wait, the riding season is about to start in ernest!

Although I have been riding during the winter, I have done it in summer conditions. You know, it is always summer somewhere.

As I was pondering my coming rides, I also realized that the season will start most likely in rather challenging condition. I.e. it may be cold and wet, even icy, but most certainly road surface will be dirty and much more slippery that when I left the season in the fall. It is time to give safety and safe riding some thought.

Before we all attend the safe riding refreshers, now is a good idea to enjoy the thought about the coming rides and to watch a few videos to get in the right mindset. Youtube is full of good tips, sometimes also some not so good. Therefore give the ”advice” you get some thought and pick the good ones. Just have a browse, it will be worth it anyway.

To get you started, I picked up for you some good advice I came across by Men & Motors. The winter tips are valid for the start of the season as well.

The videos are only under 3 minutes each, so easy to watch through!
