"OK, if you’ve made it this far and are willing to go farther, you’re either in great shape, having an out-ofbody experience and didn’t know you could turn around, have a ton of water and food and supplies for an extended stay . . . or you’re totally lost. Going farther without good biking fitness, plenty of water, and some trail food isn’t very wise."
