I was cycling gently through Victoria Park this morning, near the lake by the Pavilion. My 3 year-old daughter was in the child-seat behind me.
Suddenly a flock of pigeons flew across the path - towards the water. I was right in the middle of the flock. Normally you'd expect them to avoid you. That's what birds do, isn't it?

A quick query on Twitter was inconclusive about whether people get hit reguarly.
But this was revealing:
almacdSE1 @karmacycle I get pigeoned a lot in east London. Round Aldgate. Odd.
Anyway, if you have anything to add about the subject of being hit by birds while biking, please add to this blog by hitting the comment button!
