I am not 100% sure it was a cougar, but I can't think what else it would be. I was riding my road bicycle at about 15 mph coming south on Oak St. I looked up ahead about 60 feet and saw a very large cat jog across the road in a heavily treed area from the west to the east. It had short reddish brown fur/hair, and was very muscular. It was long and lean. It was bigger than a bobcat and did not have the shorter front legs. I believe I saw a long tail, but honestly don't remember. My brain said cougar, but logic argued. All I know is it was a cat, and it was big!
