    Beware the Attack Rabbit!

    A rabbit almost killed me this morning. (Maybe not, but it sounds dramatic.)

    I was travelling around 30 kph down a cycle path when a bush bunny decided it was time to cross the path.

    I managed to avoid hitting him and stay upright but I don't know who got the biggest scare.

    We have been wondering where the exiled hissing rabbit from the Jimmy Carter incident ended up, I guess now we know!

    Sounds like the rabbit in Monty Python's Holy Grail. Be sure to carry a holy hand grenade.

    Judging by what the rabbit posted over on the bunny forms I'd say he got the biggest scare

    That's what I like about using the road: automobile traffic has a tendency to sweep the street clean of "obstacles."

    By the by, Media, I saw an episode of "Bill Nye, the Science Guy" in which he really became our greatest spokesperson. Hat's off to him.

    One day riding on a road near my house I hab both rabbits and squrrels cut across right in front of my tire and then had a deer race with me (she won) then a skunk started racing with me (I won). So I'm not sure thoughs multi-wheeled thinks are all that effective.
