    In Arcata, Ca? You could ride through some pot farms and see if you can outrun the gunfire.

    Drink heavily the night before. See how long it takes you to vomit on the trail.

    ^^ In this enlightened age it is not polite to leave bodily fluids on the trail any more. That becomes classed as a biohazard and forces people like me to have to go out and properly cordon off the area, deny entry and call in a HazMat response team to decon everyone an everything that came in contact with it.

    ^^ That's right, make sure to stumble at least a couple feet off the trail before you blow. Nobody likes smelly tires.
