Animals - They Hate You And Your Bike
Remember Animal Farm - “Four legs good. Two legs bad”? The problem is that most animals can’t tell the difference between legs and wheels, so they’ve decided that bikes are bad too. Take a look at this, via the CTC’s Twitter feed - footage from the Criterium du Dauphine, which was disrupted by angry cows protesting about the road closures for these Lycra Louts:
It reminds me of another case where another animal tried to get involved with a bike race a few years back. I think the horse in this vid just wanted to join in with the race though:
And there’s always the dog-ambling-into-the-front-wheel-footage:
Yep - you think that cars are the big danger out there. But you never see a cow or a horse texting / using the phone / dealing with the kids in the back seat do you? When drivers do these things, and as a consequence have an “accident”, it’s just that - an “accident”.
When a cow deliberately walks into the middle of a peleton, it’s just that - a deliberate act.
So keep an eye out for anti-bike bovine bastards out there.
