If you want to hammer on a bike trail, a cooperative cyclist is the best. I'm talking a trusted friend that is qualified to brake for you. I've got a few that I skate with and in a jam, I know I can say, "brake me" and they'll know that I'm going to put my hand on their butt for them to slow both of us. It's not a bad idea to practice it if you're going to rely on it. With any exchange of energy, it's a good idea to use your arm as a shock absorber, rather than just slamming into the person ahead of you. Remember: you knock them down, you're going down.
