Beware of fallen leaves.
If there is moisture between them and the road (very likely), they can be as slippery as ice during turns. They could also hide dangerous cracks or potholes.
Traffic permitting, steer around patches of leaves. If you can’t, reduce speed and coast through gingerly with your butt an inch over the saddle.
Brake to a safe speed before entering a leaf-strewn turn. Then ride straight through the patch just as you would on ice or sand. Resume the turn as soon as you’re clear.
