Na­ture Calls

Canadian Cycling Magazine - - LETTERS -

One day while de­scend­ing one of the steep­est lo­cal hills in Colling­wood, Ont., as I was on the last part of the de­scent trav­el­ling at around 65 km/h, I no­ticed some­thing on my side of the road. As I got closer, it turned out to be a fam­ily of rac­coons. I had to brake pretty hard not to hit them. One of them, prob­a­bly the mother, turned to­ward me and hissed. Even though I could have had a se­ri­ous crash, the hiss­ing made me laugh. There’s lots of wildlife in our area. I have seen ev­ery­thing from deer, foxes, tur­tles and snakes, but this was the only time I’ve been hissed at. Tony Hane­maayer Colling­wood, Ont.
