Been riding on one of the most popular rail trails in the area lately and it's a great ride. Almost every time I ride it I have a close call with a squirrel, chipmunk or bird. Wednesday the wife had a close call with a chipmunk and about a mile later I came within an inch or two of another chipmunk. It's worrisome because I can see my wife diving into a tree to avoid running over any kind of animal. When the one jumped in front of me my first instinct was to hit the brakes, now I was only rolling along about 14 mph so it wasn't a real problem. I was wondering if anyone here ever hit something or crashed trying to avoid wildlife.
