About This Item
Use your head (to look where you’re going.)
This may sound slightly remedial but it is an under-appreciated habit of a skilled rider. It becomes even more important in corners where riders tend to be mesmerized by the area of pavement directly in front of their bike. As you round the turn, keep your head and eyes up, looking through the corner as far as you safely can, at least three to four seconds ahead. (If you can’t see that far ahead, you need to slow down until you CAN see three to four seconds ahead.) You’ll be surprised by what you may see. Couple this new-found vigilance with an escape route (should something wicked come your way) and your chances of getting intimately familiar with the pavement are cut dramatically. Often a good game to play is the “What if … ?” game. Try to anticipate that car turning left in front of you or a spaceship crash landing in your path. Hey, if it happens on TV, it could happen to you, right?
