Bunny hopping is something you do on a bicycle.
If you mean strafe-jumping which is done in quake III, here is a tutorial.
Strafe jumping is like the most important thing in trickjumping. What it
basically is, is running, jumping, and pressing strafe all at the same time.
The result? You go faster than you would just running.

Step by Step
1) Start running
2) Press the strafe key, left or right, and jump a nano second afterward
3) Hold Strafe in the air
4) Land and jump again immediately, still holding strafe and forward

TIP
You can alternate strafe keys to keep you going in a straighter line,
however, its not usually necessary.

This tutorial is really short, because its a simple thing, its easy to
master, and you will be able to do it in no time. Counterstrike strafe
jumping is supposedly a lot harder, and it involves one of the concepts of
circle jumping as well, so be thankful you play quake.
So how useful is it? does it reaaaaaly make a difference? Damn straight it
does bitch, thats why everyone, EVERYONE, does it. because it seriously helps
you move around a map, and the better you are at it, the better you will be a
player.

I kinda miss the hours I spent trying to learn some of those jumps. The
one in q3dm6 was tough but I eventually made it.

bridge to rail? tough one to master. I can do it sometimes, but have to be
real into the game to hit it consistently.
