    Hi everyone,
    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?

    Thanks very much in advance!

    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...



    I'll never understand women...

    This poor guy just wanted some information for his research project, and you guys just went and starting pulling out the jokes. Disappointing... With that, here is my contribution.

    Poland, who else? :)

    Well, it seems to be the national team. They probably ride on different teams the rest of the year and just use that equipment. Happens at basically every level when national teams are involved.

    These two guys keep trying to touch my junk. I'm not ok with it.




    If you have a solution to them, and to their constant sexting of me, I'd be your new BFF.
    But I won't touch your penis. And you can't touch mine. And we can't play "tummy stix..."

    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.



    Plus it looks badass.

    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.............

    ok... on a serious note I would be afraid of:

    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 ;) )

    You might want to consider doing that all the way to the CLINIC dumba$$. They have shots there that'll clear the resulting weepy-dick-syndrome you pick up. :busted:
