Well once again a rider said to me today that he won't ride to the Snowy Ride because he can't believe it could possibly be safe with that many bikes. Fair enough, ride your own ride and to your own comfort level but I just don't get it. I've been there three times and although I've seen some questionable riding it's really not much different than any congested traffic situation. Heck, a couple of times I went along for very long periods without seeing anyone. I guess everyone is either hung over, been scared off or know of better routes than I do. Not to mention the Snowy Ride has a lot more to it than riding. So I'd be interested in hearing what others think about it. Is the Snowy Ride getting a bum rap when people say it's unsafe, or is there something to it?
