I sure hope so!!!!
I found this critter along the road yesterday. At first I passed him by but upon reflection I turned around and picked him up. Stowed safely in my pannier he rode home quietly enough. I found a proper place for him to stay and eventually he felt right at home.
Would you mess with this guy? Would any body?
He does look a bit menacing, doesn't he?
So as payment for me rescuing him, his job now is to protect my bike in my absence. I put him right to work and he did an excellent job this morning. Though the temperature was low enough to freeze shallow puddles he dutifully rode on his perch and guarded my bike while I went inside the restaurant for an early breakfast.
Twenty four miles after we left the security of my garage we returned home and he was still contentedly guarding my goods. I expect he and I will log many miles together.
Yeh, I'm not what you would call a serious cyclist....
