Yes you can try it when the conditions warrant it! I'm surprised I never went down! I did slide sideways into a wall on a slippery climb.... Elbow, knee, and handlebar hit the mud while I was still vertical, pushed off and kept going! Slippery slides nasty goop! Fun shit!
Ride more, write less, work when
Having fun is not a sport! It's a full time job for some of us!
