biking in the rain



A couple of days prior to this post I was at a friends house which I had rode to on my bike, however during the time that I was at my friends place it had started to rain. During my ride home I reached a fairly tall and steep, due to the slicked rode I sped up and was unable to control it very well. I was able to control it enough to not land head first on the concrete however I did land head first into a bush. Soon after that we had a lesson and corresponding video on friction which helped show as to why I wiped out hilariously. Because of the water the friction between the bike tires and the ground decreased leading to a much more slick situation. maybe next time I will just call for a ride
