Cowboy Cliffy decided to take us all for a bit of yee-hah into the wild west. And what fun we had! Cliffy even managed to find one of the longest and bumpiest roads I�ve ever ridden on, a real rodeo experience. Not even my kidney belt could save me.The rest of the day was spent avoiding gravel everywhere, the random river running across the road, sunken roads transformed into slippery mud, a road covered with collapsed mountain-side which was signposted as �Danger - Do Not Enter�. But hey! Who says a sign here or a sign there should hold up our adventure?Cliffy, running on all his rural instincts, responded most appropriately to the police officer who apprehended him and asked him why he had endangered our lives by flagrantly disobeying the signposted roadblock �Errr �a �farmer� said it was okay to go through�. Clever boy.On with the ride cowboys �and cowgirls!

Aah, but not for too long. There was a price to be paid for our invincible determination. The road-block policeman told his friends further on down the road about us and consequently they sought us out for a leisurely and inquisitive conversation while on corner marking duty.Oh what glee was had by them to inform us that our faithful and conscientious rear rider was our sacrificial �bunny� for the day.So very sorry Eddie � I feel sad that this happened to you. Such a heavy price to pay for performing your duty with such grace, patience and cheerful disposition.I don�t think we�ll see you for a while on our rides; please forgive us. Hope we can still put a smile on your face when we drop in at Peter Stevens.Thanks for all your good work.

And thanks Cliffy and all my fellow riders for the best fun I�ve had in the west for a long time.
