Today was the first day I commuted on my new bike a Lemond Tourmalet. First of all this bike is very light and responsive. She climbs like a mountain goat. And she corners like an antelope. This was also my first day running clipless which was interesting. It definitely helped for climbing. Anyway I was riding on the MUP when I came upon a miniflock of Canadian geese (worst Canadian export barring Alanis Morissette). They started their honking and what not leaving me a bit befudled. But I held my line. Then all of the sudden one decides to flap himself right across my path (only a male could pull a move this bone headed) and my front wheel and leg smacked his wing.
