Metal Bike Commuter

Deer, Chipmunks, Bunny Rabbits, and Other Trail Hazards

Posted in Uncategorized by metaljaybird on June 15, 2011

So, for the past few days, my little detour, the short trail I take that cuts between routes 53 and 202, I have had near death experiences due to the local inhabitants of that field.  Yesterday a tiny little furball of a rabbit jumped in front of my tire just missing becoming dinner for the turkey vultures by a few inches.  Today, a grown white tailed deer jumped out of the field and into my path.  I was probably a good ten yards away from Bambi, but I was bombing a hill at the time.  Instinctively I clamped down onto my brakes causing a fishtail of dust.  I think I’d rather bail then smash into a 150 pound beast.  My heart skipped a few hundred beats, but the deer jetted out of my way before an accident report was necessary.
