Learn how to ride safely when conditions become more hazardous than usual.

Take extra care after a long spell of dry weather, as engine oil and grease will have built up on the road. When mixed with water from a new rainfall the road can become very slippery. Continued rainfall will eventually wash away the oil, but the first few hours can be the most dangerous.

It's important to ride to the conditions – reduce your speed so you and other road users have a safe journey.
