  why did the chicken cross the road?
This isn't my story - it's Speedy Zac Lake's - but it's too good not to share.

Zac, who races for Hincapie Sports, was out on a training ride last Saturday. He decided to do some intervals, and was no doubt cooking along on that matte black and Celeste Bianchi he rides when he first saw it.

"I saw this chicken standing by the side of the road," he said. "The first thing I thought of was, 'why did the chicken cross the road?' Then, before I could do anything about it, he did."

The next bit made for a challenge.

"I managed to get my front wheel over him without a problem," Zac said. "Then he got hung up in my bottom bracket. It got kind of noisy for a minute there, then he managed to get free."

Zac managed to bring his bike to a halt without going down.

"I was really afraid I was going to crash because I was laughing so hard," he said.

Then he got to the best part - he opened up his cell phone and showed me the picture he'd taken.

"I got this much, but the chicken had gotten up and run off by that point," he said.

Can you understand why I love riding in this area?
