Life's lesson: Number 314

When you're out bike riding with a friend on your new bike, and mid way through decide to swap bikes just to check out another bike, a bike that has a different handlebar as well as a basket hanging from the front, make sure you know where the brakes are before you need them. Specially if said basket obscures the brake handles making them nearly invisible.

Well, the hikers there got a pretty good view of me careening down a gentle glide, straight towards my friend, screaming "where are the brakes? where are the brakes?".

I'm fine, thank you - we didn't crash and I just have a few scratches on my leg thanks to my Fred Flintstone impersonation.
