Beating the bike lane grit left behind by snowstorms

Be extra careful on those corners too. If you like leaning into a turn, you my find the grit beneath your tires steals your traction.

Also remember the FRAP laws, whether possible or practible, do not require you to ride in the debris at the ede of the road. Take the lane if must. Still if it is a narrow road with traffic in both directions, you may find yourself with no option but to ride in the grit. Some tips for cleaning your bike are timely.–Corrie
