Deer Accident at 11:45 AM

My wife and I have ridden thousands of miles but very few at night because of the high risk of deer or moose collisions in our ride zone – Maine and North Eastern Canada. Unfortunately for us, our accident happened at 11:45 am.

The deer we were involved with was in a dead run and only made herself visible to me as she leaped over a guardrail directly into our path. A fraction of a second on either side of that leap and we would have missed the deer.

We survived and will live to ride again. Maybe my next bike will have a deer whistle for added insurance….it can’t hurt.
