Since the nice fall riding weather continues and the deer are on the move it is perhaps a time to pause and think about animal strikes. The local roads Cypress, S2S, 99 just north of the Peace Arch, Mount Seymour, etc, I have seen deer at all of these place and with Deer Season now open now animals will be moving and acting crazier than normal. The craziest place I just missed hitting a deer was south of the Bellis Fair Mall as it crossed I-5 at a full run.
Here is a sobering update on deer strikes from the Washington Post
I am sure I am not the only rider on this forum who has hit an ungulate, I don't recommend it.
