    Bike route along Mississippi closer to reality
    http://www.startribune.com/local/11...qyP4O:DW3ckUiD3aPc:_Yyc:aULPQL7PQLanchO7DiUsT

    Another mode of transportation will soon join those already offering memorable and scenic trips along the 3,000-mile Mississippi River:

    Your bike.

    A map of the route through Minnesota is expected by year's end. Signs should be up to mark the national Mississippi River Trail by 2012, according to the state Department of Transportation.

    The trail, following the river from its Lake Itasca headwaters to the Gulf of Mexico, aims to do for bikes what the Great River Road did for cars -- get people closer to the scenic old river.

    Cyclist fends off leopard attack with mountain bike
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/new...ds-off-leopard-attack-with-mountain-bike.html

    Mr Ncube said he managed to trap the animal's two front legs in the triangle of his bicycle's frame so that it could not move freely or reach him with its teeth.

    He eventually pulled a loose steel bar he had attached to his bicycle and smashed the leopard around the head as it clawed at his face and head.

    The frightened beast then ran off into the bush.




    Any lessons here in dealing with drivers? :p
