Do you get dog problems at the full moon too? I just try to stay off the bike for those nights.

Well besides trying to kick the dog the only thing i find that works well is spraying them with water.

Water spray is the best.

A Silca frame-fit pump with a two-pronged Campag. head is next-best.

I have no problems. The only dog I havn't been able to outrun (even at 12mph) was the one that jumped in front of my bike. I got the front wheel over him just in time, but alas, my rear gave him a spanking that will probably keep him away from cyclists for a long time.

Your best bet as always is to outrun/outdistance them.

Since the last thread---I've taken to carrying an 18 inch piece of industrial wash hose. Swung with enough force--it will probably crack their skull and will definitely ruin their day. This is one hard piece of flexable hose.

I'm with Stumpjumper, outrun 'em. I was trapped, once, on a rutted, muddy road where i couldn't get up enough speed to get by two big dogs. I had to wait them out, it was scary. The bastards.

AS for the avatar i going to change it. as for the dogs i think i am going to spice their lives up with a lil flavour . I was thinking that they would prehaps enjoy some PEPPER. I will see how those BASTARDS enjoy that. Maybe theyll find as enjoyable as i do almost getting bitten.
