It impairs your ability to focus and make wise decisions. For example, if you are late for work and get behind a driver who is driving less than the speed limit, their choice might make you angry. The later you are, the angrier you become. As your anger progresses, you might be more inclined to make dangerous decisions, such as passing someone in a no passing zone, going around someone in a turning late, or following too closely.
Your anger is making your choices for you. When your anger dictates your actions, it causes you to make poor decisions. When you make poor decisions behind the wheel, you are more likely to cause an accident. Furthermore, some people take their road rage to a whole new level. While most people might feel frustrated and follow too closely or pass when they know better, other people might let their anger cause them engage in more dangerous behaviors. For example, someone who suffer from anger issues might follow someone else home and threaten them, hit them, or start a fight.
Someone who has anger issues and faces road rage might even present a weapon and threaten another driver. If you can handle your own road rage, you must learn to handle that of others, too. Many foreign travellers are unaware of this rule, and therefore roundabouts can get very dangerous. Driving around Iceland is a wonderful way to experience all those wonders of nature at your own pace.
Most people visiting choose to drive the ring road Rte. The Ring Road extends around the coast of Iceland with a total length of 1, kilometres miles. The road is mostly paved and very well maintained, however there are stretches of unpaved gravel surfaces in the eastern part of the country. The majority of the Ring Road is comprised of a single carriage way with two traffic lanes, one in each direction.
Note that it may expand with more lanes when it passes through larger towns and cities. Be smart and seek information on weather and road conditions before your trip, this is especially important during the winter season. We recommend that you read the guide on driving in Iceland and watch the video as well.
The website also has information on all road conditions in Iceland: Road Conditions in Iceland. It's also common to see some people talking on the phone whilst driving, and the occasional aggressive speeder or tailgater.
Don't let these few law-breakers put you off driving or let them influence you in any way! Respect the driving regulations and enjoy your trip. When driving in the Icelandic countryside it's very easy to get distracted by the gorgeous surroundings! No matter how beautiful something is don't let it distract you from your driving.

If you see something that demands your attention, please find a place safe place to park and give the attraction your full attention instead! Some of the roads in the countryside may be rougher, narrower, and far more hazardous than you are used to. That stiffness, along with their light weight, shows up when you accelerate and when you climb.
They handle very precisely, though not any better than a few other of the better handling wheels in this category. A trademark of Campy wheels is their smooth rolling hubs. Very smooth rolling in the case of the Bora Ultra 50 which come with the companies top ceramic bearing fitted hubs. Oh, and they look drop dead gorgeous. But, these Boras standout.
Driving in Italy: What You Need to Know
No stealth looking black on black labels and matte black finish rims for these babies. The carbon weave is beautiful.
The large grey and white or red Campagnolo labels scream your brand preference. Very Italian indeed. They went to a textured brake track and added in some higher temperature resin to improve performance and reduce the chance of overheating. While the previous model had pretty good carbon rim braking, this is a touch better and puts them on par with the best dry braking carbon wheels. Like most things Campy, they sell for a price premium to every other wheelset in this category. I guess if I threw a set of Lightweight Meilenstein into the mix the Bora Ultra 50 would look like a bargain.
Do the math. They roll very smoothly — light, quiet though not silent freehubs, and kept me going without having to put out a whole lot of extra effort once I got them up to speed. These are also very stiff wheels. Consistent with this level of stiffness, they handle precisely and confidently in corners. Vertical stiffness is another way to say compliance which is another way to talk about comfort. The latest version of the EC90 SL has somewhat improved braking but they have neither a textured brake track or use a high-temperature resin as the best braking wheels do.
The brakes perform at last generation levels so give yourself some extra time to stop, especially on wet roads, over what you are used to if you are coming from alloy wheels. I also recommend you use something other than the Swissstop Yellow brake pads Easton ships with these carbon wheels. The Yellows leave a pollen colored ring on the otherwise very attractively finished and labeled rims and the modulation is somewhat soft. All provide better modulation and no ring around the track.
The first generation SES 3. Well, the SES 2. Makes sense; at rim depths of But they feel as fast or faster than the other wheelsets in this category not named Zipp or Bontrager and they laugh in the face of crosswinds. ENVE rim brake wheels all use the same textured brake tracks. In my experience, they are top of the charts both in dry and wet conditions. The ENVEs sold through European stores are all speced with Chris King models however and those are some of the smoothest rolling hubs you can find.
The SES 3. If you are torn between buying a climbing and all-arounder, the SES 3. Previously, Mavic had put aluminum sleeves inside their carbon rims to provide alloy brake tracks that dispersed the heat generated from braking.

The result? I could feel added comfort in the ride. This is especially so with the new Mavic Yksion Pro UST 25C tubeless tires that are made for Mavic by Hutchinson and that come pre-installed on the wheels and included in its price. Just add the sealant that also comes with the wheels and inflate. Compared to the much heralded Schwalbe Pro One tubeless tires, tests of these new Yksion Pro show equivalent rolling and puncture resistance see tubeless tire ratings here.
Whatever its design influence, the new Mavic hub is smoother and quieter than the noise created by the SL C hubs while retaining the distinctive Mavic freewheeling sound.
This is real progress if you care about freehub buzz. At the speeds I ride mph on an average training or group ride , I found it gives you good braking on dry pavement but is not very good on wet roads. My fellow tester Nate rides considerably faster mph and challenges wheelsets a good deal more. He was unimpressed with the braking power and heat dissipation of these wheelsets down long, steep alpine descents. We both noticed they squeal after warming up. They do handle well in the crosswinds you often find in high mountain passes or those coming across open spaces. They do hold their speed well once you get moving but nothing out of the ordinary.
The same can be said for their handling — solid but not inspiring of aggressive riding in the corners.
