i usually get a chauffeur to drive me to mountains in a stretched vehicle if I want to ride, it's so much more relaxing not to have to worry about traffic.






of course it's expensive so I usually get about 40 other people to join me, we meet at a certain place and pay the chauffeur a certain amount of money and he brings us all there in a huge vehicle

/troll (sorry couldn't resist)

There is NO problem as long as the boots are not done up...

Do them up and you have restricted movement in your feet and is a recipe for disaster in my mind...

This forum needs a "like" button... I was looking for it after reading this!!!

Seriously now, I've done it if staying 5 mins from the hill, but honestly it takes 2 mins to put a pair of boots on. Mine are too tight to drive comfortably in.
