We have gorgeous weather in Santa Cruz and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area — sunny blue skies with mild temperatures equate to perfect bike riding temperatures.
Autumn is also deer rut season.
As I biked to work this morning, I saw a city worker scooping the remains of a deer near my home. An hour and ten miles later, I zoomed at 30 MPH around a sharp bend on Old Santa Cruz Highway and through the still slick remains of another dead deer. Small bits of gore and fur flew up into my face. Fenders would have been helpful.
Maybe somebody can distill that experience into a haiku?
