When Venturing Out on Two Wheels, You Need To Be Aware of Obstacles That Suddenly Appear in Your Way and Safely Navigate Around Them. Here's a Few Things To Look Out For:
When riding, look out for deer that run by or freeze in front of you, especially during dusk. If possible, slow down. Resist looking directly back at them and instead, focus on steering your way past them.
Grass Clippings Blown onto the Road in a Curve
Slippery mown grass onto the road is especially dangerous around curves. With green grass trimmings on the pavement, don't lean the bike over and race through them. Take your time getting past this obstacle.
Potholes and Unmarked Excavations
Winter takes its toll on roads. Right after the season passes, you may not have a chance to check out the main back roads and locate the new obstacles in your path. Keep your eyes on the road ahead and look out for small potholes and broken pavement. If you see something and you're not sure what it is, slow down and look for a way around it.
Gravel and Fallen Rock
A right hand curves close to a steep slope and roads, intersections with gravel roads, or driveways that slop down to paved road are usually places where sand, grit, and gravel can pile up on the road. When hitting a turn, be aware of how you approach the turn because your traction will be thrown off. Practice riding on dirt and gravel roads when you can't slow down and find a speed and lean that is comfortable for you.
