    So there I was at about 9 pm lights on all legal, belting through my local park which is a cycle
    path when this big ugly black dog gives

    snapping and barking as I pedalled like mad to escape. It was like a frigging SAM chasing an F16 I
    could not shake the mother off. So I screeched to a halt full bang on the Shimano discs and let this
    dog have a facefull of Reebok trainer. The dogs owner then caught us up and had a go at me about
    booting the dog and cycling too fast and he might call the old bill. So I asked him "where his dog
    shit was?" He looked a bit confused so I said to him that obviously he has a bag full of his dogs
    shit that he has cleaned up from the pavement. He stood there shaking his head as I reminded him
    that his dogs stinking festering pile of logs was probably smothered all over the pathway for all to
    tread in and cycle across.

    I also demanded to know why the stinky black dog was not on a lead? No answer to that either
    suprise surprise.

    It never ceases to amaze me peoples double standards, and you might think I give cyclists a bad
    name but we will never be as anti social as people who let their flea bitten mutts shit all
    over the path.

    So dog owners get the massage. Eat my brake dust shitter.

    Gibbo.

    I was attacked by a big black Doberman last Saturday. I had decided to ride down "his" street and
    it came at me from the pavement, baring its fangs. I decided to stop instead of trying to outrun it
    and there was a bit of a stand off. It's flaming owner, instead of calling it off, decided to
    pretend that it wasn't his and walked off around the corner. In the end I turned around and left
    "his" street and it lost interest.

    Idiot. Just stop and say hello to the dog. It'll figure that you're the boss and leave you alone.

    The dog probably had the day of its life, chasing a pillock on a bike, laughing at the poor inferior
    fool sweating like mad to get away. It is probably still telling its mates about you.

    If a dog chases you, just stop and talk to it.

    dogs = weird

    I've been chased by dogs but I've found that by letting them get close enough and braking sharply
    enough, they usually run into the back wheel. Sometime this requires rapid accelleration before they
    come to and start to savage parts of bike or body.

    Before Saturday, I'd only been attacked by one dog, a small Scotty who ran out of a farm house as I
    passed by at speed. It was amusing to see its little legs going like the clappers as I easily held
    it off at about 12 mph.

  7. So there is my mate Ian, riding his Windcheetah recumbent trike along Boundary Road, E17, this being
    one of the less genteel areas of The 'stow. Outside a pub are some Oiks, one of whom has a dog,
    doubtless called "Tyson" or "Rambo". Oik thinks it would be amusing to see Tyson / Rambo feasting on
    Haunch of Telecom Technician, so unleashed the hound, with a cry of "Get 'im!"

    The sound of claws clicking on the pavement lent Ian wings, and a mighty sprint ensued. However,
    Tyson / Rambo was not to be put off, and launched a last despairing lunge at the rapidly-departing
    trike. Alas for the creature, this obliged him to leave the pavement and cross the road, a region
    also occupied by a fast-moving Transit van...

    > *** THUMP *** <

    Ian reported that he did not go back to enquire about Tyson / Rambo's wellbeing, but on recounting
    this tale to Richard Ballantine, the latter shook him warmly by the hand, saying simply
    "Congratulations".

    I usually stop and bark loudly at them. I have no idea what I'm saying but it seems to totally
    confuse them ;-)

  10. I'm sorry for the dog, though not that sorry as it clearly had no intention of being friendly to
    Ian. I am not at all sorry for the pikey twat who found it amusing to sic the dog on someone. Go and
    read what dog-owner Richard Ballantine has to say on the subject of dogs chasing cyclists.

    Would you have prefered the rider to have been bitten? Any turd dispenser off the lead is fair game
    for anything to happen to
    it. And anyone that tries to compare the fate of children in a war with the fate of said turd
    dispensers has no real arguent and is relying on emotion.

    And you know this for a fact do you? What if someone has a genuine fear of dogs? Why should I
    tolerate dogs trying to bite my back wheel? Why do you think owners should leave them off the lead
    in public places? Why should I have my journey interupted by other peoples ignorance. How many times
    have you heard an owner say " Oh he"s ok he wont bite"

    Interesting.... Ric thinks dogs talk, and swap stories. What else Ric? Do they race cars, or fly
    jumbo jets at the weekend? What planet are you on troll?

    I thought some goody goody would be along to stick up for errant dog owners. Ladies and gents meet
    Ric the dick.

    More enlightenment from Ric will no doubt be along shortly.

    I fail to see the comparison.

    How can you link kids being killed by bombs to dogs chasing cyclists? You are confused and
    delusional.

    And you sound like you're the sort of person who confuses two totally different, and separate,
    issues ...

    Ive never been attacked by a dog when I've been on a bike, although cycling along shared use towpath
    can be dodgy for the seemingly demented dogs that are incapable of walking in a straight line.

    Anyway I was going along this towpath the other week and saw a person ahead carrying a dogless lead.
    Uh-oh, I thought - wheres the dog. As that thought flashed through my brain the dog flashed out of
    the undergrowth, careered across the path and under my front wheel. Well not under but more of a
    glancing blow to it. A split second later my bike was in a perpendicular plane to the path.

    eeuuhh

    What a whiney spineless little man you must be. Scared of a dog! LOL!!! Then you go around boasting
    about kicking it.

    Is it really so traumatic for you to have a dog bark at you? Perhaps you should see a psychiatrist
    for treatment over irrational fear syndrome.

    No, the OP was taking pleasure in seeing an animal suffer.

    No, not at all. But taking pleasure from seeing an animal hurt or killed through no fault of its
    own is pathetic. And to boast about it on an ng, trying to pretend that it is funny, is even
    more pathetic.

    > Any turd dispenser off the lead is fair game for anything to happen to

    Yawn. You are as bad as car drivers on who regard all cyclists as fair game. Just learn to respect
    that other people have different pleasures to your own. You'll be a nicer person for it.

    And how, pray, do you arrive at *that* outlandish conclusion? Nowhere in the original post does it
    say that I took pleasure in seeing the demise of the unfortunate creature. In fact, if you look
    closely, you'll see that nowhere in the original post does it say that *I* saw it it at all. Nor am
    I "pretending" that it is funny. May I cordially suggest that you get yourself some new glasses?

    Oh, and Plonk!
