During the ride back, we saw an interesting sight. A college-age gal was riding the other way with no hands on the handlebar, an iPod bud in one ear, and talking on her cell phone. She was wearing shorts and a sports bra so if she had wiped out she would have had a near-full-body road rash.
Didn't seem like a very good idea. E agreed with me, too (thank goodness!).
