I ride for exercise and enjoyment. I live in a rural area and enjoy riding the country roads fairly close to my home. I had ridden this particular road and area many times before and never had encountered this or any other dog. When the dog gets close, I squirt it in the face with water from my water bottle. Just a small squirt that hit it right in the face. That's when it stops chasing. It was looking at my leg when it got close so I think it was going to bite. No way to really know, though.
