close encounter

← Back to Forums


today I was riding on the abandoned turnpike trail- coming back to where i satrted was a slite uphill so i had my head down and was pedaling- when I looked up there was a black bear-(good size) stopped in the middle of the trail looking at me (about 50 yds) I was riding into a headwind so i guess he didn’t smell me-
I slowly turned my bike away and pedal like hell back the way I came- I know you’re not supposed to run but I was biking- when I finally looked back over my shoulder- aboput 3 min later he was gone but my heart was still pounding in my throatt- see these are the kind of things you just dont get riding city streets
