Dear deer,

Hello Deer. How are you. I am doing fine as well. Except for the pea gravel embedded in my left elbow. Yes, I understand that I keep riding my bike through your kitchen and living room but I cant help it. You see, I have an addiction to it. I just cant get enough of it. I find myself thinking about riding when I am sitting to long. My boss caught me on www.sram.com at work the other day drooling over Force shifters. So Mr. Deer you will have to understand that I am going to be returning to your neighborhood (tomorrow) just as I understand that if I spook you and your kids in the middle of the trail again I stand a good chance of nearly getting gored by you one more time. Thank you for showing me that I can run in my cycling shoes.

You friend,

Ziggy

If his deer are anthing like mine, a club is all you need. (IN season, they're a little more spooked, but now, they don't run until I actually hit them with broom. )

Spoked some dear on our group ride the other day. The mom got off the road no problem but the fawn had lots of trouble on the pavement. We stopped and watched until both were clear. It could be worse, it could be an angry bull moose.

I found this crumpled note on a rail trail last night, I think it's for you:

Dear Ziggy,

Hello oddly shaped bipedal critter on a shiny contraption. I’m doing well today, thank you for asking. I’m terribly sorry about the pea gravel in your elbow, I didn’t mean to spook you. I just wanted to come over and look at that shiny contraption you were perched atop. See, us dear are very competitive beings as well. We like to play games of speed and agility, our favorite in the forest is a game we like to call “Dodge Car”, but “Chicken” is a close second. Now I’m not the fastest deer in the forest, I spend a bit too much time munching acorns and foliage, but I really think that contraption of yours might be just the thing for me. Would you mind if I try it some day? It might help me loose a few pounds around my tender back straps. I’m really sorry about loitering on your trail, but it’s pretty humid in the forest and I like to hang out in the shady parts where the wind blows. I can’t seem to reach the zipper on my blasted fur coat and I’m sweating my hooves off, I hope you understand. Thank you for the advanced notice of your arrival, I hope to see you there.

Your Pal,

Wilma the Whitetail
