Ha! That is hilarious :) I will also keep the water bottle method in mind--I hadn't thought of that!

Thanks for the laugh! I haven't had that happen in a few years so I kind of forgot about how much "excitement" that can cause.

Good idea using the water bottle to squirt the chasing dog. I'm going to remember that.

Your story made my day! You can only get through some experiences with a good laugh. And I thought the 2 little poodles that chase me were bad. Every time they do from now on I will forver keep you in mind!
Thanks for sharing and making me smile!

Yes, a chasing dog is great motivation. On Saturday I had the same situation except it wasn't a pit bull it was a large longer haired dog barking and chasing. At first I thought it was just chasing after the other dog in the yard, that's what it was doing the first time I went by, then all of a sudden it turns on an intercept path toward me. My heart started pounding and I started pounding on the pedals. It is amazing how fast you can go with the right motivation. After I got clear of it my legs were shaking for a couple of miles.

Maybe I should get a big dog to chase me when I am running.....

I was finishing up a 20+ mile solo ride plodding along after a looooong incline (can't call it a climb...but it still sucks it out of you), mind turned inwards, inane music playing in my head...when another cyclist blows past me and calls out "Good Morning!"

I screamed like a little girl! Startled the pooey out of me. If I'd been paying attention as, I should have been, I would have noticed his approach in my handy helmet mirror.
Adrenaline surge #1

and now for motivation....

Same ride. I was 4 blocks away from the house. I found out that, on the level, I can get up to 27mph on my bike! All it takes is a pit bull tearing out of a yard and giving chase.

I'm glad it wasn't older as I was able to finally get it away from me by squirting it with my water bottle.
BIG ADRENALINE SURGE!
Very fast for the fat guy...nothing but a vapor trail. (big BROWN vapor trail)
