    And this, kids, is why you make sure you're far enough over to the left to keep idiots in cars from trying to squeeze past you.

    If we could just convince human drivers to just f'ing slow down or stop when they're confused we'd probably have 10k fewer deaths every year. But no, human drivers just keep truckin'.

    In general, this. Even with studded tires a lot of the trails are really hard to ride because you're constantly battling little craters. If it were smooth ice it would be a lot easier.
