  2. I was riding the other night on a residential street with my headlight and taillight on, and two teenagers were riding contraflow with no lights at all, wearing all black, and we came face to face. They yielded to my larger bike with full lights (and my buddy also on a large fat tire bike with lights), but I quickly told them as I was passing that their riding behavior was against the law. Neither one of them had helmets either. Most states’ laws require riding with traffic flow. Of course, teenagers know better, haha.
