not so fun ending...Carbon fiber fanatik

It was a fun ride till the end. Fast 67 miles of rolling hills, some flats, around a lake with a lot of walking distractions, then past the deer reserve and back into town. Half a mile from my house, I turn onto my street, then BAM..! Hit..! Guess what by? None other than some 12 y/o kid on a four wheeler who decided to jump the ditch on either side of the road. Can you say miocardial infarction? Tagged by an off road vechile! I'm okay though, but more importantly, my bike is unscathed. I've been tagged by mirrors, bottles, cans, even a semi-trailer and a car, but never by a vechile not even legal for the road. Anybody else hit by something from the twilight zone?

Ride on...

... a raptor... perhaps a small hawk... just came up and clipped me (didn't stoop) out of nowhere (no talons... just bounced off)... my riding partner and I were immediately reminded of those old European legends of babies and small lambs being carried away by eagles... I'm one BIG baby...
