Unusual ride home
« on: July 26, 2014, 11:39:12 PM »
Riding with my brother back from a local bike night on an unlit but main road between Weston and Bristol doing only around 50. I happened to put main beam on and seconds later notice something. Suddenly saw two fully grown dark brown cows running side by side straight at me. Threw the bike right and hoped like hell my brother would miss them, which he did. Had a bit of a laugh between us then caught up a bus and was following it for about a minute when something flicked out from under it and straight into my path. Bars kicked big time as I went over it and turns out it was a badger.

Now the approach to my house can be via a nice country road or slightly longer via houses. Thought I would take the houses rather than risk a third run in with a kamikaze deer!!

If the farmers in Somerset have their way, there will soon not be a badger left to run over.
