We had a squirrel on the Tuesday night ride... he was on an Orbea. I kept a goodly distance

On a group ride, many years back. Riding side by each, and I'm on the inside closest to the curb. Dog runs out from under some bushes and scared the $hit out of all of us. Luckily he was hit with water, squirted from a bottle. Will never take the inside ever again. I would have loved to have seen my heart rate at that moment.

One dog chomped my foot. Luckily it was not in the old days, so I had a plastic heel cup, and didn't feel a thing. Did a training race in Central Park a 1000 years ago. Some woman was walking her little dog off leash and it got killed by a huge pack of over 100 riders. She waited for us to make it all of the way around to yell, "Murderers!" at us. I love dogs, and I felt terrible, but you're walking a dog off leash in the middle of New York City?!

OMG the Central Park weekend early am training races! I remember them! The main goal was not to get dropped on the north side of the loop due to risk of getting knocked off your bike for theft in the rougher part of Manhattan. And cat's paw hill before the uphill finish. Sure Americans sucked internationally then, but it was a golden era of domestic racing in the NY NJ CT area. Kissena was not a joke. Somerville was as big as it got outside of nats at Madison, WI. And the Cali riders who were as good as we could produce back then- Ron Skarin, later George Mount (Jersey transplant to CA - look him up on Wiki-major groundbreaker who never got his due) and Tom Ritchey (yes that Ritchey he's done pretty well) etc etc eventually Greg LeMond.

Sorry for the geezer reminiscence. We've move from a 6th tier sport to a 4th and occasionally 3rd in the US over the decades on good days rivaling soccer and on most days not. I hope that someday Joe six pack will think of cycling and not think of doping first.
