I was riding today with a buddy who cruises at about 18 mph, while I have to pedal my ass off. But then we left the roads and hit the Palmer bike path. This is unfamiliar territory to my friend, so he let me take the lead, and I practically road us into what you see above.
Fortunately, someone had chalked a warning sign right in front of it or we never would have known that tree was there.
