The rider with the camera is a twit. Why would you ride that close together on a road like that? Idiot.

He seemed to like the outside line didn't he! Dopey. No second chances.

Where is that road?

Sure would suck to encounter cars coming the other way.

Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world.

I have ridden roads like that in BC, but I would never ride that close to another rider. Really it's not that bad as long as you keep your eyes right and know how to ride off road. The bike the guy with the camera was using was a cheap bike and it's suspension was crap. He was an idiot ....practicing.
