Even out here in rural Ohio road conditions can be unnerving. I like to ride through Amish country because there is nice scenery, curvy roads, and rolling hills. But there is also Amish buggys. I really don't mind them and always keep an eye out and have no problem sharing the road.
But the steel buggy wheels eventually cut ruts in the asphalt. Some are bad enough that it's dangerous if the bike tires fall into the ruts at speed. Unfortunately, with budget cuts the road crews are delaying repairs and only doing partial patches instead of a full repave. The partial patches rarely are feathered out,and being random, makes for some interesting maneuvers to try to dodge steps between the patch and road surface.
Entertaining to watch a biker weave around on what cages probably perceive as a perfectly fine road.
I would rather be lucky than good lookin' . . .
