Hi all. I'm an 18 y/o college student riding around Columbia, MO on a 1999 Diamondback Viper. I may get into BMX (we have a dirt track and a skate park, I hear) ...but for now...
I RIDE IN DRAINS!!!
Yes, yes, if you know what I'm talking about, hold your applause; If you're confused, imagine: when a city is built, all the creeks in the area don't just go away, they're put in tunnels. Plus, even more tunnels need to be built, or else water that would normally just sink into the ground would sit on asphalt streets. Thus: drains are born! And of course, the kicker for me (and you too) is that since drains are built to suck down the hugest storms, but they rarely have to, they often have just an inch or two of water. Great to ride in!
Don't worry kids, it's safe, clean fun! Go in drains (with a bike)!
