Most unusual road kill you’ve seen whilst cycling?
A crispy dead body in a burnt out car. I kept my distance and didn’t go and look at it personally (that would of given me nightmares), but some of the ride group did.
Car was still warm. Place was swarming with rozzers when we rode back past later.
Suicide apparently 🙁Posted 8 years agowoffleMember
Not exactly roadkill but a dyson vacuum cleaner. In the middle of the road in the middle of the Sussex countryside, in excellent condition. Would have taken it home but didn’t fancy 15 miles on a bike carrying a hoover
( that aside, nothing unusual – weasel, rats, badgers, foxes and even a deer)Posted 8 years agonickeggMember
Badgers,deer,fox,rabbits,squirrels and birds around here.
The odd toad if i’m lucky. Found a dead badger in my local woods yesterday. The trail passes over the top of a set and it was right next to the trail so i hope it wasn’t killed by a someone out on a night ride 🙁
I’ve come pretty close to running a few badgers over myself whilst out on night rides.Posted 8 years agosilverpigeonMember
I take it you’re by the sea… (please tell me you’re not)
Yep. Live in Guernsey now and cycle into work along the coast. Weird thing is that I haven’t actually seen any live seals since coming here.
Must have gotten washed up on a high tide, but I can’t work out how it got over the sea wall and into the middle of the road.

Not really roadkill as such, but while cycling in the US I spotted a snake lying on the road.
It looked dead and I was so tempted to prod it with my bicycle pump to check, but decided to leave that bit of excitement for later.
When I got back the snake had gone and so had just been basking.Posted 8 years ago
Turns out it was a water moccasin , an aggressive venomous snake.
Sadly a man, who ran across the road without waiting for the green man, was hit by a bus, embedded in the windscreen draged along the road, before finally falling under front of bus, and out the back, over a distance of about 60 feet, the driver was highly traumatised, as was me.Posted 8 years agoantigeeMember
just drove home from a run around th glory that is Burbage Valley – woman stepped out in front of me (i was going slow) to pick a baby hedgehog up out of the road – unfortunately in her haste to put it back on the verge she dropped it down a drain…some people can be too helpfulPosted 8 years ago
