Incident type: Animal encounter
Location of incident: Elroy Road, Del Valle, Texas 78617, United States


Cycling southbound on Elroy Rd on the outskirts of Austin, TX I looked up to see a large white dog staring at me from the end of a driveway. As I approached within 20 yards, the dog started trotting towards me. Because the dog was already in the road ahead of me, the dog had a direct angle at me. If I stopped to turn around, I risked losing all momentum and the dog may have caught me, instead I chose to sprint directly at the dog and attempted to juke the dog at the last second.
