The biggest danger comes when either you crash off the trail into the brush, or you stop to fix a flat. There’s not much you can do to guard against snake bites in the event of a crash, but at least in the latter situation be cautious about where you set up to fix the flat. Snakes are more scared of us than we are of them—we just have to be careful not to get too close and elicit their defense responses.
