ran over a cottonmouth snake 1.5miles into my ride, 20 minutes later came 10 ft from a doe running into me, and at the very end a rabbit decided to play chicken on the trail with me.

how was your ride today? :)

I came across 4 deer on Mt. Penn in Reading,Pa today... And on the way home I ran over a 7/16" wrench laying in the road.

There goes a perfectly good one month old Pirelli P Zero Nero.... :madmax::madman:

Ouch, sorry for you!

The other day I came across a tortoise taking a dump right on the singletrack. I thought about punting him as a punishment of his disrespect, but I decided to cut the little guy some slack. He has to deal with the smell for the next half an hour or so...

!? You must have hit that thing "just so" to do that! Bummer luck.
Thats what I was thinking! I have no idea how it could be a direct hit like that....

I was so stoked after my ride and was on my way to get a beer... Come to think of it I never did get that beer. Mmm... Now I know what I'm gonna do! :thumbsup:

My scariest (but not the most dangerous) was almost hitting a skunk on a night ride!
My stinkiest encounter was startling a young skunk as it was leaving the trail and got sprayed on my shoe and the rear triangle of my bike. I don't know what that little stinker was spraying, but it bubbled the Imron paint on the bike in one spot. The shoe was history.

The wrench reminds me of my old gf's '00 SS back in 2000. She comes in the house saying "my car is making a clicking noise." rofl

It took out a brand new Goodyear. That 'nail' had to have been at least 10" long. What the hell uses a 10" nail?

A tire store in my hometown has a large container on their counter with all the objects that they have pulled out of people's tires: railroad spikes, tree branches (not just for derailleurs), keys, various tools, and quite a few 10" nails.

We had almost the same experience this past weekend...Lead rider almost got the doe, and later on in the ride we narrowly missed a large cottonmouth.
