Cycling: Watch Out For Anything!

For a split moment, while watching the Tour de France, I momentarily thought the TV had switched to the Animal planet.  Running out in front of the peloton was a dog…  a dog that probably regrets trying to cross the street. Check out the action below:

After watching this, I should ask dog owners to make sure their dog is leashed when attending any sports event, for the safety of the dog and the cyclists.

While we are on the subject of Tour de France crashes, check out the second crash in the following video that brings the peloton to a stop! With the narrow roads and so many cyclists riding so close together, the worst can happen.  Luckily no one seriously hurt.

And seriously, if you don’t think dogs, or even cameramen are problems for cyclist, watch this next video.   It amazes me how many dogs there are roaming the streets of Europe.

Cheers!  Enjoy the dramatic footage and keep your eyes open while on the road.  As Mark Cavendish says, “It’s just life.”
