Incident type: Animal encounter
Location of incident: Northern Connector, Globe Derby Park South Australia 5110, Australia


I was riding along a bike track and just after an approaching rider past, I looked up to see a brown snake slither from the side of the track directly in front of me. Not having time to brake or take evasive action I rode over the top of the snake. It did make an angry sound and tried to strike me, without success. I went back to check but there was no sign of the snake, so no damage to man, machine or beast.
