Odd, rare and random

Which is why it makes the news!

Boulder, Colorado — A woman was riding her bicycle along the South Boulder Creek Trail on Monday when she encountered the cow and stopped to let the animal cross. Instead, the cow knocked the woman over and stepped on her legs.

Boulder Mountain Bike Alliance vice president Jason Vogel called the incident “odd, rare and random.”

More here. No word on if the cyclist was wearing a helmet or not, which is weird given that research shows leg injuries are reduced as much as 72% when you wear a helmet. Watch out for those deadly cows, cyclists!

    Guess the cyclist didn't mooove far enough out of the way for the Cows taste…

    This is why I rarely rode my bike around Chino, Ca., when I lived in the Inland Empire. ;-D
