Word. I put on a clean t-shirt yesterday, and something inside the shirt immediately bit my back. I had a 6" diameter red bump, with red tendrils radiating out from it. It was dramatic and itchy. I now distrust my clothes.
RANT: It's "set foot" and not "step foot". It makes me want to stab a hobo.

AMEN on the bug bites. I hate em'. On one part of the trail I ride, mosquitos come at you from every direction and it gets worse and worse the further you travel. And when I'm stubborn and want to complete the whole trail, I go through it and when I reach this incline, bugs just fly in your mouth and nose. Very disturbing if you ask me, plus it hurts. Alot.
Also, there are some idiotic kids on my local trails that like to throw glass around. There are some sections that have the majority of glass, but there still are parts that have a few shards sticking up. Luckily, I haven't had and tubes popping (which seems crazy because of all the glass there is). I talked to the staff that maintenance the trail and they did not clean it. Thinking of bringing a rake the next time I go down.
