Smarter than Jeff – the Final Chapter

Jeff and I have been riding together for a long time, so sometimes we draft off of each other. This can be very efficient and dangerous at the same time. This is my view when I ride behind Jeff.

I can’t see much of anything around him so I count on him to point out any road hazards. Unfortunately, Jeff didn’t point these items out on our recent ride. So I fell down.

Joking aside, remember to be smarter than Jeff. If you are riding in a group, it is your responsibility to point out obstacles in the road. This includes piles of gravel, large cracks in the road, any type of debris (e.g. pictured above) or anything else that can be a hazard to other riders. Simply point to the hazard and let others know where it is!
