Danger Danger

Brisk day, riding bikes. I sat up, riding hands free and looking around. Okay – maybe spacing out a bit.

A blur speeds toward me and, before I can touch the handlebars, my front wheel slews sideways. In a breathless feat of bicycling glory, I steadied myself and grabbed control without tumbling.

And the squirrel that had barreled directly into my front wheel bounced off, ran between my front and back wheels, and scampered up a tree.

Um – it couldn’t be that injured, could it, if it could run up a tree?



  1. HAhahahaha! How often does this happen? I never thought about bicycle roadkill stats. You are a menace!!! Arrrrrggghaarr!
    I agree with Dean, squirrel is fine. Are you ok?
