Random Thoughts from the Road – Deer

10 06 2007

Deer have incredible reflexes. Unfortunately, their escape strategies need a bit of work. So do their basic levels of attention. I surprised the stuffing out of one poor specimen in Denmark by simply riding towards it while it munched on something at the side of the bike path. It must have seem me at least 100m before I got anywhere near it, but it suddenly decided I was real at a range of about 1 metre, and promptly lunged directly in front of me. Fortunately I had anticipated this logic and started swerving good and early, cursing fluently. Silly deer.
