    New question here. Skunks

    Has anyone ever been sprayed by a skunk while riding?

    Last night while riding back to Lakefield on the Rotary Trail, a skunk ran across the trail/railbed in front of me. It was probably 10 or so feet away when it crossed the center of the trail. All I could think of is "I hope it keeps going and I don't run it over!"

    I've been cycling since 2004 & I'm pretty sure I've never seen another skunk in my travels.

    I once road over one that quickly crossed my path when I was descending down a hill. I think I just caught it's tail. When I got home it was a tomato bath for my clothes and the bike (was winter so my skin was out of harms way).
