Life throws you curve balls sometimes. Earlier this week one came as a giant sheet of plastic on the freeway. It was dark and it was invisible until so close it was unavoidable.
Luckily my brother was able to slow enough that riding over it didn’t cause him to crash, but the fact that it got caught on his bike and melted to his exhaust nearly did. He was able to slow and get to the shoulder with out crashing.
Just a reminder that you have to plan for the worst. Be ready to do whatever you have to do to avoid road hazards, and wear the gear to make sure that if things do go wrong you have the best chance of walking away from it.
