    Dog, chase

    I got one of those mini gopro wannabees. The pinhole cameras have a lens better for a Cap'n Crunch decoder ring. Anyways, I put it on this morning for a half mile ride to the grocery store for a jug of milk, orange juice and a barley pop (for tomorrow or the next day). The camera holster goes through my belt, I point it backwards so there might be some evidence of who ran me over. The video shows the drifting sands have bared the bike lane. But since there is a sidewalk, I like to put space between me and the monster trucks.

    So from nowhere you hear a dog barking and giving me the chase. I immediatly laid down my bike and went after the beast intending to do some neck throttling and then probly throw him over someone's Cyclone fence. Normaly the rides are uneventful and forgettable, the camera becomes an inconvenience to leave at home. For those looking for a little action, this video won't go viral neither when my sweatshirt hoodwinks some of the good bits.

    Anyways, what would you do?

    I can tell you what I wouldn't do - post that video. I think you need a helmet cam.

    WOW! drama , suspense , and where is Waldo?

    Never try to train a dog unless you have permission! And don't use force , fear or physical pain to get compliance. If you get off your bike there may be 10 or more dogs willing to join the fray. One housing development , by the time i was getting to the main road, i had seven dogs following me. Think the movie "the birds" times 10. Yes i have been bitten while riding

    We used to go by the house of the offending dog....this time with a buddy's car....and whack the pooch with the door. Those were fun days.
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.
