A speed bump that bites...

The AP reported today that a Boulder triathalete hit a bear while riding her bike during a race. She came around a corner on a paved road and broadsided the black bear. Neither was seriously hurt. The woman went on to finish the race.

This reminds me of when I was snowboarding once and hit a squirrel. I came around the bend, he was running out of the woods, and POP! I looked back to find he had been pushed down into the snow by the board, like something out of a cartoon. Once I slid past, he popped up and ran back to the woods.

Anyone else ever have a non-motorized run-in with an animal? And no, tripping over the cat in the dark doesn't count.
