    I had always thought holding your bike over your head was a rather excessive
    gesture and for show offs but a friend who did one of those organised
    charity rides in the great state of Montana said no, it is something the
    alert defensive cyclist needs to know in places where moose wander.

    The theory goes that when confronting a moose, a bike held over your head
    gives the appearance of being a bigger moose, and the humbled creature goes
    elsewhere in search of sport.

    Wonder if it would work with the killer geese that tried to unseat me in my
    last country road race? - perhaps only the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch
    would work there.

    best, Andrew
