I just watched the story of Aron Rolston, the man who cut off his own arm to avoid death, and it got me thinking. If you do any semblance of real mountain biking, chances are that there will be times that you are away from civilization. Not NEARLY as remote as Canyonlands national park, but out there to where you might get lost if you tumble into a ravine and get trapped or any of the feak accidents that are possible in our sport. So, I must ask, are you TRULY ready for your rides? Some BS ride in some city park doesn't really count, but one that shoves you way away, where you can't get a cell phone signal, and you may be miles from civilization, are you ready for it? Just wondering.
