Incident type: Animal encounter
Location of incident: Cameron Street, Langford Western Australia 6147, Australia


Cruising toward home with about 10k to go, hot day and into the wind. Saw a snake moving quickly left to right across the path in front of me. Saw it too late to stop so chose to swing behind it as I have done in the past. Snake turned back and struck at the bike, I un-cleated left foot and raised it and was looking at the snake, rode off the path into soft sand and went down on my elbow. Fractured Head of Radius, but could have been worse if he had bitten me.
