Good Deed

I decided to take my road bike on a rail trail in Pennsylvania today. It would have been a more enjoyable ride had the trail been paved. As it was, narrow tires and crushed stone don’t go so well together.

To give myself a break, I hopped on the road and ended up riding some pretty rolling hills. The road I was on was heavily traveled by dump trucks. I was very impressed that they were cyclist friendly. They didn’t blow by me, and they gave me plenty of space, considering the shoulder was basically nonexistent.

I would like to give kudos to one such driver. As I was climbing up a hill (felt like a mountain!), I watched a mama deer cross the road. I kept watch, knowing there would be another deer to follow. Well, there was… a fawn. The only problem was the dump truck approaching from behind me. I signaled to him, and he slowed way down, allowing that little fawn safe passage across the road.

I am delighted to report a happy ending for all involved. The experience made my so- so ride much better!
