Hold on with both hands

Tip for cycling at night: hold on to the handlebars with both hands, tight. Because, although you might see some of the huge pinecones laying in the road ahead of you, you won't see all of them. Especially when you look behind you for upcoming traffic.

Fortunately, I was heeding my own advice this evening. As I was turning my head again frontward, my front wheel just caught something big on the ground, and only because I had a good grip with both hands did my wheel not turn violently to one side. And only because I'm flat out lucky did I not blow out the tire. 8o

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the springtime, when my commute home is again during daylight hours.
