My wife and I crashed our tandem on a sharp corner after running over a cat, of all things, We were doing 26 mph and leaning into the corner when he ran out and our rear wheel was lifted causing us to go down. Result was ~20 broken bones between us.

Some wag has renamed the Strava segment "Watch for Cats and THANK AN EMT."

Wasn't Otis the drunk in Mayberry RFD who would get soused and then put himself in jail?
