- Always ride in control! March 18, 2018
Today we had a close call, in an otherwise great day of riding. While we were approaching a corner, another rider was going far too fast and couldn’t make it and ended up going straight into the snow off the trail. Fortunately he ended up going behind my wife and her sled and my son and I we’re able to stop. This could have been far worse.
I’m sharing, because I hope at least one rider who rides like this one did might change their riding without having to have a near miss or an actual accident. Everyone wants to enjoy their ride and also enjoy a ride the following day. So please, ride for the trails and conditions. If you can’t see what is up ahead, slow down. There is a time and place for speed and it is not when you can’t see far ahead. You should always be able to stop for turns or any unexpected hazard that might be in the trail. Just imagine if we had been in the groomer, not on sleds? This would have been a collision for sure. So please, ride within control and speed appropriate for the trail and conditions at all times.
To the rider, I hope this was a valuable lesson learned. We all do stupid things, we just need not repeat them.
