Breaks Interstate Park, VA to Lookout, KY
If you can remember the original Nintendo Paperboy video game, then you can appreciate the threat of a dog chasing you on your bike. We'd been hearing about these rabid stray dogs wandering the countryside of Kentucky for the past week now. In fact, we had two or three dogs chase us in Virginia already. But the dogs in Kentucky are what nightmares are made of, so we're told. Becky holds our only canister of mace as a precaution, while I have a blow horn.
I'm not overly concerned about this potential dog threat, it's just another obstacle we have to prepare ourselves for and react properly too. We've heard most accidents occur while the cyclist is attempting to access their form of dog repellent, resulting in a fall. Therefore, my instructions to Becky are to first of all be safe and don't panic. Second of all, access the mace and burn the godless dogs eyes out.
