Today's ride was supposed to be a fairly short one at an easy pace. Then I take a day off before the Orlando Tour de Cure 50 mile event (My first Tour or organized event ever).
The ride was really nice, and I found myself marveling at all the friendly little squirrels playing chicken with me on the bike. They always seem to dive out of the way at the last instant, and then race up a tree to watch you go by.....until....the last one.I ran over him. I mean not just a little bit, I ran right over him...he lasted about 15 more seconds and was gone.
Weirdly, after having seen more squirrels on this ride than normal, I didn't see a single other one the 4 miles left to get home. There have been none in my yard all day since then either. This is weird.
Am I the only one to run over a squirrel on a road bike? Tell me its happened to someone else. I know its "just" a squirrel, but I feel bad for running over the little critter......
