Wet leaves and riding — Feather your fingers (Fall riding)

Wet leaves or leaf-covered rocks and logs can be slick. The key to staying upright in slippery situations is to keep your wheels moving — that means no locking up the brakes, or you’ll be riding a leaf-bottomed sled and losing any stopping power you had. Keep things under control by feathering your brakes. You won’t stop on a dime, but you’ll keep things in check.
