I got quite an ear bending on twitter and Facebook following my picture gallery from my Peak District ride last Thursday. Many readers were irritated by my reference to this holiday weekend as being the last days of the summer. Sorry about that, but to me, it is.
That doesn’t preclude an Indian Summer, or the fine weather continuing, but the return to school of the children, the nights drawing in and getting that certain chill back, the return of the dew, and nature’s harvest all mean the coming of the golden season for me.
This year’s summer has been the best we’ve had for years – not too dry, not too wet. Plenty of sun, and not too much wind. We’ve had some remarkably good bank holidays, and this weekend continued the trend. Although Saturday was a little grim, Sunday and Monday were excellent, and I got to cycling over the Chase and through East Staffordshire. Too many pictures for 365days, so I thought I’d do a gallery.
