Safe Riding?

Yesterday I experienced once again how you never know what will happen when riding. As I was happily out mountainbiking and enjoying the great weather, a "normal person" came the other way, tried to move to the side of the path as my buddy and I came towards her, and slid off the mossy side of the path, she fell and her bike skidded across the path blocking it.

Tour de France

I have to admit to being a huge fan. And this year it's gotten even better - not only have we survived years of doping, spiralling out of control, but we now have Twitter! It all adds to the ability to keep track of what is going on, all afternoon/evening long.
