Was out on our local bike trail, The River's Edge Trail ( http://www.thetrail.org ).
The trail was pretty much empty I guess due to the winds. I figured I could open'r up a little.
So, I was cranking along with the wind down in the drops doing about 28 MPH (long open straight stretch)when all of a sudden I see something dart out in front of me! There was no time to react, which turns out to be a good thing! The critter, a furry little bunny rabbit, split my wheels, hit my one peddle on the up stroke and tumbled to the other side of the trail! I won't repeat my utterance here, but needless to say I was quite shocked! There was even a little patch of fur on the peddle.. poor little guy...
I finished my ride and changed my shorts..
