Riding through the Webster Tube
I'm riding my bicycle more. I'm a pretty aggressive rider; my eyes are always looking around making sure the cars aren't running me down as I weave my way through traffic. I wear my helmet. The really only scary thing I do is ride through the Webster Tube: up to 50 mph on the downhill on a slick strip of concrete narrower than a sidewalk bounded by a railing on one side and a tile wall on the other.
You can literally scrape both your elbows at once while holding the handlebars.
Okay, so I guess the scariest thing I do when riding my bike is riding with one hand through the Webster Tube so I could take this picture for you.
