Whistler downhill, bear on MTB trail
Think this would be fun to do. Do not have places like this in Central Indiana. Not sure that will ever have the opportunity as I only have street bikes. Do not think that my hybrid would stand up to this type of terrain. I would probably go at a much slower pace also.
Have had encounters with wildlife and animals on rides but never anything like a bear. Have just had to contend mostly with rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, dogs, and an occassional deer or wild turkey. Wonder if bear sightings are not too unusual and that the bear is use to people around. It did not seem too alarmed when the riders went by it. The riders did not seem too alarmed either.
