I am working on an engineering project with the purpose of making bikers safer when they are alone in the mountain. Could you please let me know what dangers you are worried about when biking on your own?
When I ride alone in the woods, I keep seeing this chick... I think she's dangerous but Im not sure... I try to talk to her to see what the hell she wants, but she just stares at me and doesn't say anything...
If you could come up with a helmet like this, it would protect against the two things that kill cyclists in the mountains; over-the-bars neck injuries and cougars (not the drinking kind) sinking fangs into the back of your neck.
And I thought saying I'm afraid of all the drunk/drugged dweebs that do their target practice with their firearm-du-jour where I ride would be serious. I can tell by all the warning pics I was way off base.............
Cougers (someone actually died on our trails a few years back)
Serious injury where I couldn't walk
Passing out from dehydration
Busting a wheel or soemthing where i had to walk instead of ride (other than a steep hill that is )
