A few weeks ago I had to change my cycling route because I kept getting chased by dogs.

This weekend I had to deal with cows on the road.

I came across a pack of them that managed to wonder off of someone's farm. As you can see from the video, they totally freaked out when they saw me.

When I came upon them I slowed down and stayed behind them because I was nervous about riding alongside them -- I was thinking about the scene in Jurassic Park where the T-rex is running along side the Jeep and head-buts it. As a result, two cows ran ahead of me for half a mile until they moved far enough to the side of the road so that I could quickly pass them. To be clear, my forward motion was causing them to continue running forward -- all the other cows just ran off to the side of the road. I wonder how long it took for the owner to track those cows down.


  1. This sort of thing does NOT happen in the city and county of Philadelphia.

    How far do you ride?

    PA Polls close in just under two hours.


  2. More importantly as a "city slicker" it's only appropriate that you have now encountered cows.
