|stuff I really do||DougSloan|
Aug 22, 2002 6:09 AM
|*Duck low when going downhill--feeling really stupid when I realize it
*Leaning into turns
*Constantly calculating percent grades and imagining my riding up the hill at what speed
*Thinking (or actually shouting), when the car in front of me slows a little, "CLOSE THE GAP!"
*Similarly, thinking when a car in the fast lane slows, "keep the pace or pull off!"
*Sort of bunny-hopping in the driver's seat over stuff in the road

|A few times--when I've been blindsided by a pothole while driving--I've bent my elbows and changed my wheel grip.
Also, I've ducked as I've gone under low signs or tree branches in my car.
