    So...wear a helmet when you ride, because you never know when a buck is going to go head to head with you!

    I would like to make a comment from the bucks point of view, but I feel bad for the guy.

    It's hard not to believe that that hartebeest wasn't aiming for the cyclist.

    Poor guy! ...This summer I was cycling / camping in a few national parks out West, and repeatedly I was told, "If you see bison, get off your bicycle and walk it or if you can wait for a truck and flag him down to drive you far out of visible range" of the 35mph running half-ton beasts. One park ranger thought it was only road bicycles with "curvy bars" so I assumed the drops must look like horns or something..? Anyways, there was only one occasion where I came around a bend while climbing and there was a heard of them (in Roosevelt National Park (a really gorgeous place!)) and I just turned around and rolled back down the hill glancing rather occasionally over my shoulder thinking, "I can do 40 mphs, right?!?" No joking matter as Tracker points out (but hellafast's comment is funny as hell). Safe riding y'all!
