As a new year’s resolution I have decided to buy a push bike in the hope of actually getting fit one day.
On my first attempt at cycling in ten years I happened to ride past a bunch of tiny kids playing with a Pit-Bull or similar. The dog gave chase and luckily my legs were not as dead as I had thought. I managed to get away from this little dog (with a BIG head), but it chased me for a fair distance.
It brought me to consider – what can a cyclist do to prevent attack from a dog who is intent on eating you? (Would it be criminal to carry a cattle prod like we had to do on the farm?)
As a secondary thought, would have thought the tiny children would be under tighter supervision playing with terrier dogs considering the events of Whitton in the past week.
