Just a couple of things to keep in mind for cycling this time of the year. Hi Vis
I was on the Saturday cycle for the first time in ages last weekend. It was great to see so many in our WTC Hi Vis gilets.
For those who don't yet have one, talk to Noelle, she may still have some in stock.
Lights lights lights
There were not that many riders wight lights on their bikes.
Even if you just get some inexpensive lights
As the old saying goes - Be safe Be seen
For those of you who know me from old, I've always had a thing about riders using mudguards at this time of the year.
They will do a variety of things.
They protect your clothes.
They keep some of the technical bits of your bike cleaner.
They stop muck, dirt and spray (and god knows what else) being thrown up into the face of the riders behind you
Someone in my group on Saturday got a mouth full of mucky spray from a riders wheel in front. Pretty disgusting.
So, please, have some respect for your club mates. Fit your mudguards.
(And not the crappy little ones, the full size ones, that actually do something)
Slippy roads and kerbs
Everyone needs to be extra careful with the kerb at Chesters when returning from your cycles.
At this time of the year they are lethal.
Over the past few years, we have had a number of broken bones due to people falling at Chesters kerbs.
Mount the kerb straight on, not at an angle.
Just take extra care everywhere at the moment, as a lot of the roads are quite slippy too.
