Did You Know?
Careful on that ice – especially painted pavement (green bike lanes) too!!
Please bike safely on all this ice!!
Remember, painted pavement (crosswalks, colored bike lanes, etc) is nearly as slick as metal grate bridges when icy or wet!
The instant I hit the green bike lane on icy Milwaukee yesterday, my front wheel zipped right out from under me and I broke the fall with my (now less than perfect) nose! Luckily I was riding slowly and wearing my helmet, so nothing else was broken!
But, as an ActiveTrans staff member who very recently assisted in a winter bike safety class, I wanted to remind you just how easy it is to forget and (literally) slip up for even just one second!
That being said – Keep it up, winter commuters! Bike commuting is still my passion and I will always continue to urge others to do so – SAFELY!
Watch those green bike lanes in this ice, please!
