Just a reminder that once there is any rain the kerbs in Ashford by Chester Beatty's become very slippery, we had a faller last Saturday and I am sure we will have a few more over the Winter months, if you want to avoid having a crash the best thing is to dismount before the kerb, alternatively for the more competent bike handlers just pop you front wheel over it so it makes no contact with the kerb.

Absolutely!
Also be aware that diesel carried out both sides of the filling station forecourt is beaten into the surface and like glass whenever the weather is wet. No need to ask how I know...

Came across this thread yesterday. Unfortunately, that was a day too late for me, but thought I'd give it a bump anyway to maybe save someone else!

Folks,

It's that time of year again, every year we have a number of members who fall on the kerbs at Ashford, so please be warned if there has been any rain, the kerbs tend to be extremely slippy. Please see my post from last year, below.

All,

Similar Topic - If anyone is biking on the road between Laragh - Rathdrum - Rathdrum - Laragh - The road is extremely slippy due to fallen leafs and wet roads making it pretty tricky to handle - Take your time on the corners.

I had a near miss during the week nearly ending up in the ditch...

Regards,
Rob
