Feeding The Ride Bunny

VecchioJo fattens up his pet rabbit to feed his expensive habit.

This is the Ride Bunny.
Say hello to the Ride Bunny.

The Ride Bunny sits patiently by the front door, waiting.

Every time I go for a ride I feed the Ride Bunny some money. Hungry Ride Bunny.
On the way out the door I nourish him with some loose change, £1, £1.50, maybe a £2 coin if the Ride Bunny’s been good.  A small snack of money that goes mostly unnoticed but over the months builds to quite a full tummy for the Ride Bunny.

And when at some unspecified time in the future he gets a little bit too fat the bunny bowels are evacuated and the cash droppings are scooped together to buy something special as a reward for rides done, and use for those yet to be.

Good Ride Bunny.

Jo Burt has spent the majority of his life riding bikes, drawing bikes and writing about bikes. When he's not scribbling pictures for the whole gamut of cycling media he writes words about them for and when he's not doing either of those he's pedaling. Then in whatever spare minutes there are in between he's agonizing over getting his socks, cycling cap and bar-tape to coordinate just so. And is quietly disappointed that yours don't He rides and races road bikes a bit, cyclo-cross bikes a lot and mountainbikes a fair bit too. Would rather be up a mountain.
