This was posted on the San Diego DOC FB page...just a friendly reminder to watch out for wildlife in the backcountry. There is a peacock on Eagle Creek Road that always runs out at me..one of these days it might just die from my tire roosting on its head.
Hey fellow Ducatisti,I wanted to put out a word of caution to those of us (many of us) on the fun roads of San Diego County.While out on Otay Lakes Road Sunday morning I unluckily encountered a couple of deer that decided to dart across the road ahead of me. I T-boned the second one about 45 mph and well that’s the beginning of the last 10, less than fun days I’ve been recovering in hospital, (lacerations due to the bike landing on me). Wear all your gear as I was, it did its job keeping my skin off the asphalt. No brainer right?Moral of this story, you never know when your time will be so ride safe out there but be ready, in all the ways you can think of, for the worst at all times. Look forward to seeing all of you soon.RaulBtw I think she’s totaled 👎🏼
