Imagine riding down the Interstate in a heavy fog at 50 mph when all of a sudden
you come across a stopped car in the fast lane. Can you stop before you hit
the car? You may think this is a ridiculous question, but it has happened. Don't
be the next rider killed by out-riding your eyes.
This same tip applies to good weather as well. Is making 10 mph more around a
corner you can't see through worth spending six months in a hospital? Think
about it like that and you may live to ride another day.
Always remember the Absolute Number 1 priority when participating in a long-distance ride or endurance rally: cross the Finish Line alive. Everything else is just gravy!
