OK, if this happens one more time, I’m going to declare it an epidemic: A Montana teacher is recovering from a bike crash with a black bear. This happens only a few scant months after a Boulder man also ran into a black bear while out for a ride.

People, can we please watch out for the bears while on the bike? I want to have a kickass cocktail party story, too, but hitting bears on a bike is about to become the new black.
