    Damn it. Slow down everyone. Rainslick roads.

  • And it starts…
    Be careful out there.

  • 101 in south county definitely very slick in a few spots, watch the curves and any new tar

  • Redwood Run this weekend? Right? Be Careful out there!! Stay Safe!!

  • Stay safe Humco

  • It’s supposed to rain down here in Piercy Sat. Going to be rough on the two wheelers. Slow it down.

  • Omg, 200 ft down?! I hope he’s/she’s ok! Updates, anyone?

  • I hope and pray s/he lives to tell the tale well into rocking chair years.

  • It never fails every year during Redwood Run at least one biker wrecks!!! I suppose it’s to be expected with that many all at once in the same area, maybe some haven’t ridden in a while, not to mention as someone else commented all the new asphalt around & this unexpected rain doesn’t help either!!! Hopefully this is the last at least bike wreck we read about!!! As Gazoo said, Stay Safe!!!

    Take it easy! Stay sober! Everyone please slow down and respect each other’s safety!
    Thanks to first responders and LEO’s for extra vigilance! Hospital employees, we love you!

  • Sometimes on group rides, less skilled riders end up riding faster than they should in an effort to keep up. Leaders should make more frequent stops than one normally would when riding alone, so that stragglers can keep up.

  • Thinking allowed

    Any word on the rider?
