Dangers for Cyclists in the Woods of British Columbia

When riding the Rocky Mountain 1200, I was a bit concerned about coming across a grizzly bear our mountain lion while riding along a deserted Icefields Parkway at 2AM at night.  Yes, I got a "bear bell" and attached it to my underseat bag so I would make a bit of noise and not surprise any large animals.

But it seems there are other, worse dangers lurking in the woods of British Columbia, as this story and the accompanying TV news video make clear.
