I ride coyote creek a lot when I'm feeling guilty about not being on my road bike. I like it because I can ride and not worry about getting run over by cars. I've seen bobcats, rabbits, turkeys and various other birds, but no crazy weird people peeing. Sigh. I *always* miss the best stuff.

are you going to get some lovin? good chances, but you just revealed how statistically easy OV is.

And, that's gross, keep it to yourself.
