I passed a baby bunny

Yeppir I did! Was shooting down the rail trail at 15 mph and entered a section where there are steep banks on each side of the trail. A baby bunny was on the trail and took off when I got close. But there was no place to hide and so it headed straight down the trail away from me. I dropped it like a rock, giving it "the look" as I passed.

Well done, sir!

At least that's how I like my baby bunnies.

I passed (dropped) four dachshunds and a turtle on my Saturday ride. No, the dachshunds and the turtle weren't running in a pack. Had to dial it up to 47 watts to drop the dogs .

I had a great ride yesterday. The tourista's were all walking, most of them the other way. I passed no one, no one passed me. There was one lady however who parked her bike in the middle of a one lane bridge and walked over to the bank of the river to explore. !@#$
