One great reason NOT to ride the Ralston Trail - whipping downhill from Ralston and getting to the 'whoop-de-doo' section, and some idiots are riding two-up. On a blind turn, on a path just wide enough for two bikes, where opposing traffic will be going about 25-35 mph. NOT SMART!!
On the plus side, there was a fork-horn buck chasing a doe across the road between Crystal Springs and De Anza, so that was nice.
