Bad Dogs

How to Deal With Bad Dogs

By Fred Matheny and Ed Pavelka of www.RoadBikeRider.com

Dog attacks are high on the list of cycling fears. Maybe you can't stop Fang from giving chase, but you can outsmart him if you know how dogs think, assuming that stinkin' mutt even has a brain!

Some riders swear by Halt pepper spray that they clip to their handlebar. This stuff works great-if you hit your target. That's a big if when you and Spot are going different speeds, the air is moving, and you're trying to stay on the road. Pepper spray stings a dog's eyes, nose and mouth, but it doesn't cause lasting damage. It also works on human attackers, but that's a different story.

If the same dog accosts you every time you ride the road, report this to the authorities, too. You have a right to use public roadways free from fear for your life, liberty and pursuit of cycling happiness. Keep following up with calls to make sure steps are taken to put PupPup on a rope.
