A GPS Nod to a Worthy Adversary

Cyclists: beware the territorial ostrich!

As a long-time cyclist, I’ve had my fair share of run-ins and close-calls with critters both wild and domestic. I’ve had bees in my helmet and wasps in my jersey; I’ve been swooped by hawks and harassed by ravens; I’ve narrowly avoided deer, and I’ve had to bunny-hop over raccoons and prairie dogs.

But it all pales in comparison to this: Cyclists chased by an ostrich…

While that rampaging ostrich didn’t have the legs to win the sprint, it has proven to be a worthy adversary in other ways. You see, for a couple weeks before he trotted along, GPSdoodles.com seemed to be the hottest thing on the Internet. Then along came a flightless bird with an appetite for Spandex…

How’s a GPS doodler supposed to compete with that?
