I was riding up Tiorati Brook Road yesterday morning. Had my head down at the end of one of the climbs. I lift my head as I come around a bend, and Mr Bear is 30 yards in front on me. Right in the middle of the road looking at me. I of course stop right there. Mr Bear takes 2 steps right towards me. I muster everything I have to yell at him and not sound like a frightened child. He turned sideways and walked away. Seemingly completely and totally un-ruffled.

I did set a personal record on the next segment though. I had some serious adrenaline going.

This is the 3rd time I've seen a bear but it was the closest and scariest.
