Oh, come on! I am 81 years old with a pacemaker and adrenal deficiency following a brain tumor. I do 20 miles daily, and hundred milers with my daughter Ealasaid every year. For some neat rides, check out "Bikes and Beers" on line!
In my neighborhood it IS dangerous. There are a LOT of uncontrolled dogs here. Big dogs.
Now that IS scary! Pedestrians, aggressive cagers and bike haters one can be prepared for. But Not so big dogs with a taste for tires.
Tapadh leibh, a charaid!
