    Saw this little guy beside the trail today.

    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    Whoa, Nelly! I turned a corner and was suddenly surrounded.

    Glad they were friendly and I didn't spook them...

    Riding in the remote nahatlatch valley in the Fraser canyon in B.C Canada in July of 2005 , my riding partner and I stopped at a nice vista of the valley, I went to the edge of the trail and looked down to see 4 grizzly bear, a sow and 3 cubs !! They were almost as big as mom was !!! I paused only long enough to take on pic and we got on our bikes and sprinted down the trail!! We stopped at about 200 m away and watched them come up on the trail snorting and flicking dirt in our direction, man what a rush , it was a beautiful sunny day and the trail was single track heaven, if we were gonna die that day, it would have been a good day to die , I hope you can see them in this pic there way closer than they appear, they were no more than 50 feet away at the time and that's only seconds at grizzly speed!

    Feral hog trap?

    In the didn't have a camera category:
    Too wet to ride, so took a stroll in my neighborhood park late yesterday afternoon. Hiking along, and deep in thought, I kept hearing a sound on the edge of my consciousness -- then suddenly realized it was the sound of migrating geese high overhead. I could hear them but not see them. In the neighborhood walking home with more of the sky visible, I was treated to the sight and sounds of three big flocks of honkers heading south southeast. Can't remember how to tell Canada Geese from Snow Geese on the wing but it is quite wonderful to see them high in the sky in formation.
    They were in a "V" formation, but not a balanced one; there was a long line of geese on the east side, with just a few on the west side.
    A rare sight for us, so it is always special to see them.

    North Creek Trail, Alafia River State Park, Florida. 7-8 ft, I'd guestimate. There was a second in the water a couple of feet from this one.

    This was a cool frog we found in the Fall. It was in a park called Klondike that overlooks the Missouri River in Missouri....The frog had camouflage colors of the dried leaves even with the dark veins you see on a dead leaf. I'm thinking in the summer he was as green as grass.

    boxing kangaroos on boxing day

    There's been lots of rain recently so quite a few of these around at the moment, but you don't see them boxing very often. The picture was taken by a friend.

    Can you spot them?

    They were meandering off Devil's Backbone Trail near the summit at about 9,000 ft. This is the highest mountain in Southern California (tops a little over 10k ft) and actually doable on a mtb but many sections are more of hike-a-bike

    From a ride in November along the Murrumbidgee River to Murrangang on the SW slopes of New South Wales.

    There was a lot of water in both the roadside and farm dams. I caught this large common Yabbie in the muddy water of a farm dam. Its colouring is appropriate to the water and water weeds.




    ... and caught this Blue Claw Yabbie in the clearer water of a gravely stream running into the Murrumbidgee. It has been a good year for catching yabbies.




    One of the features of riding here is riding amongst road-side grazing ... like this handsome young muscle builder. Have you seen signs like, IF YOU CAN'T CROSS THIS PADDOCK IN 6.5 SECONDS DON"T ENTER ... BECAUSE THIS BULL DOES IT IN 6.6! I always thing of that sign when I ride into herd that are road-side grazing.




    ... and something less attractive road-side grazing.




    Warren.

    Don't have pictures, First time at Diablo, first ride up the gondola I saw 2 black bear cubs running across the trail, and than Momma came out of the woods 10 seconds after them. 200 feet up the trail there were 3 riders coming down on them, I nearly shat myself I thought they were going to be eaten lol

    I didn't get a pic, but yesterday @ Santos I came around a corner and found a weasel in the middle of the trail. So far that is my strangest animal encounter.

    Saw this thing on my way to the hills at the weekend... Not sure if it is some kind of bear? Wonder if I could drop him with a .22?

    Cycling has really damaged my social life outside of cycling..everytime I see the letters "gf" it now means Gary Fisher..not girl friend..and when I hear Velociraptor I think of a tire and not a dinosaur

    This might be closer to the mark. Found these guys at everything stream crossing in Sun Valley Idaho last year. Had to dismount to give them the right of way

    Great pics!

    I'm just getting back into mountain biking after years of road riding, so hopefully I'll see some cats of the wild variety. I take video of the entire ride whenever I take a recreational road or mtb ride, so hopefully I'll see some good stuff.

    This isn't a bike ride, but a few years ago some friends and I took a drive up in the mountains at night. We saw a huge mountain lion in the middle of the road. He stared at us for a second or two before running off into the woods. If my friend had hit the brakes instead of slowly driving forward, I might have been able to get video!

    We always see deer in the forest, but they run faster than we can ride so it's hard to get a photo of them!

    no picture but saw a 12 foot reticulated python crossing a canal path in Northern Thailand. It was just about dark but no way could anyone miss this thing. Their skin is very shiny and reflective. I got off and thought about grabbing it's tail Steve Irwin style but realized that would be a really bad idea.

    Seen lots of cobra's and other vipers but the Python was a real memorable sighting.

    I came up upon a wild turkey on my last ride. I came around a corner and it was just sitting there in the middle of the trail. As soon as it saw me it took off and flew up into the trees.

    thank you for letting me realize how lucky i am.

    Last night sitting on my deck i was looking at 2 bull elk, 5 cow elk, dozen deer and there was a group of turkeys and the male was out fanning and strutting around. Idaho is a good place to live.

    That's a pretty serious ride there - fully rigid singlespeed is hard core.

    I'm riding along, enjoying the trail, when all of the sudden I lose control during a landing. As a result, I ended up bailing off my bike, hopping one poison oak plant-just to land in another one. 100 yards down the trail on a sharp corner, I find myself running a little rattlesnake over. Kept going

    Do you drink the 86-proof or do you go for the 100-proof?

    I usually drink on the way BACK from the trailhead.

    Thumbs up on this one! These guys are making themselves at home.
    Is the ladder to access the upper windows when the snow is too high to get in (or out) the door?

    Snow is what plows, shovels and such are for. The ladder must be a fire escape and/or access for the chimney sweep.

    Reindeer can be almost invisible WHEN they decide it is much easier to walk on the road than in the bushes.

    Little mama coyote walked right up to our group on trail and checked us out from about 5 feet away.



    Another rider had come through in the other direction right before this and at first I thought this was her dog and was calling it over for some pets. It actually looked like she was considering it before she walked off into the brush.

    This was on Bella Vista trail in Monte Bello if I recall correctly.

I would be pretty nervous riding fast anywhere there may be a gator relaxing round the next bend! We have crocs in places, but only ever seen them in the water/on muddy banks...never relaxing in the middle of the trail!!

    Awesome photos!

    Here is the only one I have. It was slow moving enough for me to get my camera out.

    My last ride I encountered two Sandhill Cranes in the woods- 5 feet of the trail- scared me and them! Too bad I didn't have a camera handy

    Don't have photos (to scared shitless to think about it) but I ran into some black bears up in algonquin park. Once I saw just his ass hangin out of the bush. He jet once he heard me comin. The second time it was a female (likely with cubs nearby) and she just stood on the trail staring at me. I stopped got off my bike about 20 meters away and began screaming shaking the bike above my head! Lol sounds funny now but I'm lucky she didn't charge me.

    Thanks, yeah it had me shook up pretty good for that evening. The truck is all fixed up now, but I'm constantly on the look out for turkeys like they are after me or something.
