Rattlesnake season

I was riding my bike home from CHWP yesterday and instead of staying on the upper part of Thompson Creek (paved) trail I usually circle around on the dirt road by the electrical towers. Only the left track is smooth, so that's where I was when about 30 feet ahead I saw a snake lying across it in the afternoon sun. I lifted my feet up and cruised about six inches past the head. It was a nice looking rattler, I guess about 18 inches long. According to Runkeeper I averaged 15mph on that section so I didn't get a great look at it and I also didn't go back to get a photo.
