    Anyone Hit a Rattler Recently?

    Today, first time I've hit one in a while and on a trail I've never even seen a snake on. Bella Vista on the way up to Black Mountain. He was pissed. The rattlers are still out in force.

    Luckily I made it to the top unscathed. Sorry, no pissed off snake photo.

    I ate a bagel today (I refuse to post up a sideways pic).



    Anyone eaten a bagel lately?!
    Ride fast. Huck bravely. Waste no beer. Safety third.

    He doesn't look pissed, but that'll do

    I came far too close about 4 weeks ago on my gravel bike. I didn't really see what it was until I looked over my shoulder. Fortunately.

    I almost wiped out stopping for this one yesterday at Santa Teresa. It moved off of the trail pretty quickly after I stopped. Wasn't sure if it was better to stop or ride over/around it.

    Santa Teresa is a short ride my work, it's not too bad for a quick lunch ride when it's not too hot.

    Almost ran down a lil' 2 footer that was crossing the fire road at Water Dog yesterday. Luckily I was able to pop over it.

    Edit: This was the first rattlesnake I've ever seen while out riding trails. I was surprised to find one in Belmont but the warning signs must be up for a reason.
