So I'm riding my bike, the river is to the left of me. I take a look at the little computer and it says I'm doing 15mph. I notice a sign and decide to have a nose as I go. It's something like "jump in the river and die". Out of the corner of my eye I see a flash, a stupid little squirrel has decided to jump out in front of me. I slam my brakes on and he decides to run in the same direction as me, darting left and right. Finally he runs up a tree. And gives me the most filthiest look ever. The cheek! So, I declare that a new law be passed. All squirrels must now wear crash helmets. That way I won't wear out my brakes and tyres. Chopping off their legs would be a better option, but I think that has even less chance of getting passed. Luckily it's one of those days where there isn't much air about. Otherwise I would have been going faster and definitely would have splattered him. Still, it made a change. The other day at the same spot I almost ran over a rat or something who thought it would be fun to play chicken with me.
