Bear Attacks Commuter
See, this is what makes cycling in Alaska a little different:


An Anchorage man commuting to work on his bicycle was attacked by a brown bear near Rover's Run trail today, according to the state Department of Fish and Game.

After the initial attack, Berkey waited, then lifted his head to see if she was still there. She was. She became agitated again and Berkey put his head down and played dead again, Sinnott said. He then waited several minutes before getting on his bike. Berkey, a pediatric pharmacist, works at the Alaska Native Medical Center.

I think I dated her once. Thankfully he's OK.

You dated her? Was it recently? Could it be your cub she was protecting too?;):D

Well, some rides are just naturally better than others.
