There is a lot of discussion on this latest crash in which grass is being blamed.  Grass in the road did not cause this crash.  People who blame grass in the road for their crashes need to wake up and learn to ride.  Sure grass in the road is a hazard but it is the rider who ultimately crashes or doesn't crash based on their riding ability and decision making.

In the crash in the link above the woman was riding in a group behind her husband.  The husband "lost control" on the grass clipping and suddenly slowed.  The wife then hit her husband and crashed and ultimately died.  It's a sad story but grass did not cause this crash. I don't know the whole story but I can list a bunch of things that likely combined to cause this crash.  Poor riding skills, riding too close together, and not paying attention come to mind.  There is also speculation the woman wasn't wearing a helmet.....I don't know if that is true. 


I ride, therefore I am
