How time flies when your having fun. It only seemed a few months ago we were on this subject.

I have noticed that this year however, there is a delay. No hits from the maggies yet but I have seen a few starting to build nests. It won't be long now.

After multiple vicious attacks last Spring I'm thinking of a new tactic this year. Gonna tie a bowl of chopped meat to the top of my helmet hopefully that'll keep them happy.

I wouldn't try that.

Have you ever been knocked off your bike by a Golden retriever?

I think BogFrog may dispute that there is a delay

Yup, getting alerts from Magpie alert again :( 

I'll stay on the trainer and away from the M7 again, which then just ended up in me doing laps of Castlereagh Rd as I just ended up never going to the M7. I need to find a new route come summer anyway as I have moved.

I've made friends with this family on my round. Had to deal with an angry one before on a different round and it was horrible. Even in a motorbike helmet.

One went me last week on the MTB.  Told the stupid f*cker "it's July, which is winter!  WTF are you doing".  He didn't care, just kept doing stall dives at me & calling me a @#$%^& in screeching magpie lingo.

Two dogs chased me on the same ride.

Took up MTB cos I thought it would be safer than riding on the road :huh:

Ive got a three in my yard, probably parents and junior, who I have become quite good friends with over the last 6 - 8 months.  Be interesting to see if our friendship continues over the next couple of months.  Maybe they could have a word to a few of the others on my coast run who aren't so friendly to me. 

I know it's July, but my wife took a pic of a red belly black snake last week on the same trail. He was a bit sleepy, but still in the road.

Can be a bit of a weird place at times, there was four cows on the beach at the end of my run last week.
