Safety Report: Jacques cautioned that Hydration is important. He also advised that when riding in a
group, to downshift before a corner instead of using brakes. Then you will be in the right gear to
accelerate through the corner. This keeps more weight on the rear wheel, which keeps your bike
more stable through the corner.
