squir'rel n. small graceful bushy-tailed tree animal.

should read ...

bloody nuisance, an accident waiting to happen.

I had to swerve around three this morning out on my road bike, the little buggers suddenly dash out from the verge when you startle them.

Hmm, similar problems for me on the ride home from work the other day. There were at least 10 bearded dragons on the cyclepath, one of which I didn't see until I nearly ran it over (great camo for tarmac, see) and another which decided to run in front of me. Grrrr!

Just run the squirrels over, it's official I saw it on the One Show....all grey squirells are evil immigrants, and the longer they live the quiker they will anihilate our indeginous lovely Red squirrel. Kill them all.

Not so much a dangerous animal but I did run over a fish once whilst fording a small stream half way up Ingleborough. Must have just clipped it as all I can remember is a silver flash emerging from the water by my front wheel.

Then my rear mech fell apart on the way down.

Great riding!!

Black ones are uber cool. Used to see them riding from Letchworth to Chicksands BITD. They lived in the grounds of a hospital we used to cut through :)
