Whether it's to get to the office, do your shopping, or for leisure, you've chosen to use a bike! Congrats on a great choice! As fall approaches, you'll want to develop the right habits to continue cycling in the cooler weather of the season.
If you go out early, visibility may not be optimal. Check road conditions carefully to avoid ice patches in shady and often wet areas. Finally, don't hesitate to leave bike lanes or paths if they are covered with snow and the road is clear.
Braking in the fall
Rain, ice, or snow…be sure to rake 50 metres before obstacles to prevent any risk of aquaplaning. And remember to keep your distance from other road users to allow yourself enough time to react, especially in slippery conditions!
A good habit for cycling in wet fall weather? Reduce the pressure in your tires slightly to improve their grip. Handy!
