I haven’t done a ride photo post for ages, because to be honest, I haven’t rode much for pleasure this past winter – something I intend to correct now the year is opening out once more.
Ever year I fall back in love with cycling, I’ve mentioned this before; the last couple of weeks I’ve gradually been riding more and more for the hell of it, and decided it’s about time I got that mojo back. Commuting every day can take the shine off the thing; but the last few days of reasonable weather, and a welcome easing off at work have made me crave the lanes, tracks and towpaths once more.
Today was a wonderful day, and I headed out through the backwoods to Shenstone Woodend, Canwell, Middleton, Middleton Hall, Bodymore Heath, back up the canal to Hopwas, then home via Hints, Weeford, Shenstone and Lynn.
The weather was chilly, but bright and clear, and the sunset was brilliant. After months of working flat out, I need more of this. I’ve missed these places and not realised it. It’s time to get out and explore again.
You coming with me, or what?
For more of this sort of thing, my 365daysofbiking journal is rolling up to start it’s fifth year soon, and it still clocking up the miles…
