[RC] Riding along roads - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: Deb Ambrose mkkgs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Everyone can assess their own level of risk tolerance, as a 
kid I fearlessly rode along highways, suburban sidewalks,
concrete pedestrian overpasses, anywhere without fear.
  Even though my horse has improved, I will tresspass, ride
on a railroad track for a mile, or trailer to avoid the 2-lane,
60mph highway with sloping shoulders.  People throw garbage out
the window at bicyclists, honk and swerve at runners, and just
plain run off the road (look at the tracks) enough to make me
never do it.  Last year several people and horses were killed
near here (rural South-central North Carolina) when a car
slammed into the back of people riding and pulling a wagon on
the shoulder of a more quiet country 2-lane.
  Please be careful!
