I'm tired of being chased by dogs. I've never been caught by one, but after yesterday's chase I started wondering just how fast a dog can run, and for how long they can keep going? I know how fast a cheetah runs and for how long, but I haven't been chased by one of them yet. I would feel better knowing the facts, and therefore how long I should expect to keep pedaling.
Hi Honourable Cyclists
Me is well peed off!
I went out for a lunch time 30 way back on 16 February. A good day, if cold. Had me longs on and a hi viz jacket on. What could go wrong?
On a public road, up by some Roman ruins in Silchester, a stupid dog launched itself at me, bringing me down heavily. It cost me 5 stitches in my eyebrow, damaged my helmet, ripped my gloves, lacerated my skin, destroyed the knee of my De Marchi longs, tore my jacket and worse - dented my lovely aluminium Trek 2200!!
