Video: Bear Chases Mountain Bikers for 1km on Mount Seymour
My wife and I paid for a shuttle lap at Martha Creek in Revy in 2017. Dude driving the truck tolds us that he T-boned a black bear earlier in the year on Martha riding, but that the Grizzlies were what we should worry about. We said-" Ok, thanks?". He drove off.

I guess in an ideal world you use air horns at a moderate distance, and then resort to spray if an animal persits, and gets close.If I had to pick, I would stick with spray because I have a built-in air horn, but I can't yet spit pepper spray. But yes, definately a last resort. Also, the dyes that are used are fairly permanent in pepper spray, so that if you need to report an animal that was blatantly aggressive or habituated to humans, it will be positively I.D.ed and potentially euthanized by someone official with a badge. Most importantly though is not getting to the point you need to use either.

Also saddened by this as it seems it has had repeated close encounters of a similarly over-curious kind. Great link BTW, thanks.

Scary. Good job staying calm and staying together. In the future, I think the tactics you used after you stopped and regrouped would have been key to use right off the bat. Bears have poor eyesight, but better noses than dogs by far. Likely, he had no idea what you were. Who knows what its up to, maybe just moving through, maybe curious, maybe testing dominance. Or as the person above suggested, you might credit idiots that feed wild animals for photos, which is a sad reason to have to euthanize an otherwise healthy animal. Its tough to stand your ground when it looks like a bear is running at you, but just remember how (relatively) quickly it responded when you faced it and acted threatening. Lots of good resources out there for dealing with bears, and bear encounters. Heres one-http://www.bearsmart.com/play/bear-encounters/. From that page-"A bear that is initially curious or testing you may become predatory if you do not stand up to it." Easier said than done, and you all acted camly. Hopefully that animal was confused, and will think twice to approach humans again.

Photo Epic: Chasing Rainbows - EWS Trophy of Nations 2019
@Giddyhitch: I'm good, I have all the data I need. the riders first name is "Adrien", last name of "Daily", and of course he is French. He's like a string bean of death. The implication also seemed to be a "bad idea, race brain" type of decision. who knows? But yes, to the earlier question- these are lifetime warranty, and made in the usa. Also $700 a rim...

The UCI Responds to Questions Over Brook Macdonald Evacuation Delays
"even if it was impossible to ever get a heli there, Brook should never have been on the hill for longer than an hour, much less five, just to wait for a helicopter. Per google maps, its a 30 minute drive from St. Anne to Quebec City, seems like a no brainer to have ground transport ready with such difficult heli legislation." I remember when I was a kid playing rec soccer league, what I now call "amoeba ball" when all the kids just run around the ball in a group , where you were either "blue" team or "red" team. There was always a rescue team on site...for 30 middleschoolers...playing amoeba ball.

First Ride: Trek's New Supercaliber XC Race Bike
Man, don't get small rocks stuck between the top tube and the slidey-bits, looks a bit tough to clean, but I appreciate the concept. If it works, I think it would be neat to have a "trail" version. seems like a superfun bike.
