    When I'm riding on the road, unless I'm really tired or trying to get somewhere quickly, I'll try to bunnyhop as much as I can: puddles, sticks, potholes, manhole covers, even snakes. I find this a totally effective way to minimize drafters

    Me: Biking south on the MVT just past the 14th street and railroad bridges.
    You: a goose starting to run towards me head and neck down like protecting a mate, but there is no mate...
    Me: "Oh Shiiiiii***", grab brakes
    You: continue running and becoming airborne across the trail, just where my bicycle would have been had I not grabbed my brakes
    Me: Phew! and continue on my ride.
    You: Joining all your goose buds flying over the river

    I would have thought that Canada Goose Air Traffic Control would have been essential personnel, but maybe they're teleworking from Roach's Run these days.

    I think for the early morning flights CGATC has just gotten a little lazy. So few non-avians to worry about and so many birds out there, they just let them take off without checking the area first assuming we will move (I know I do not want to be hit - they are pretty big and can fly at over 40mph! That will hurt!).
