Commuter diaries - ring road path
This morning while riding along the tow path I was joined by 3 Deer! Amazing, needless to say I was not quick enough with my compact, alas.
They ran in front of me for approximately 100yds before leaping into the trees.

I am jealous all I have seen are a few foxes and domestic cats. Some dogs like barking at bicycles but no real wildlife.

I was riding through Wychwood a while back when a deer wandered out on the path, I slowed, it turned and looked at me and then wandered nonchalantly back into the forest. Magical moment.
Yarrump - my dog's one of those that barks at bikes. Bit embarrassing for obvious reasons

There is lots of wildlife about at the moment. Last night I had an Owl fly out just in front of me missing me by a foot or so. It then flew in front of me for what seemed like ages. Then rabbits trying to jump under my tyres. Finally there was a crazy badger on the path running straigh towards me. It looked like a moving carpet, and seemed to be playing chicken with me!

Hi Dave.. it's on my daily commute in Leicestershire. Three miles of countryside and two of city. The light was just incredible that morning!

I often have groups of 10 pheasants running along the path ahead of me... Though I have never had close encounters of the deer kind.. Nice Shot ;D
