Gottum and lived!


I was riding in/near Colonial Denning park this morning and while on a fire road there, had a squirrel dart out in front of me and then back again (saw lots of other wildlife). Unfortunately, it wasn't fast enough and I nailed it with both tires while (I) going 17-18 mph. It wasn't even fazed and ran back off of the road. I've had a fear of getting something caught in my spokes and then crashing big time but I always think "treat it like a speed bump". It worked today and I was glad to be on my mountain bike and not the road bike!

You left it in the spokes when on the BC? Fucking bad ass! I nearly had a squirrel do the same shit not too long ago. Sucker was inches from my front tire.
