Cycling and animal encouters
What do you get when you cross a bicycle going 40 mph with a huge deer dashing into the road? I came within an arm's length of finding out today! "Deer collision" was almost added to my cycling file on animal encounters (manic dog, hungry vulture, road kill, skunk, bug death, bee sting; the animals seem to keep getting... bigger!) Today's ride: 3 hours, 47 (hot--100!--and hilly) miles, two Hammer Gels, and 112 oz of fluid.
