Rides bikes, paddles sea kayaks, takes pictures. Life on the road & my home in Cornwall.
Every year around this time, well.. always on the 24th, around lunchtime, to be precise, I load my bike and pedal east to the ‘ancestral home’ for a couple of days. I find the bike ride there and back makes a terrific, and deeply satisfying ‘book-end’ to a lovely family Christmas… it’s also a super opportunity to enjoy the nostalgia associated with childhood and Christmas and so on by riding around all the lanes and backroads that I used to tear around on two wheels as a child. The route I take is far from direct but works out to be a rather scenic, appropriately muddy, and virtually traffic free journey consisting of about 40% dirt & 60% asphalt. I had my camera with me over the weekend, hence this post – honestly I would not subject you to my hopeless ramblings unless there were some pretty pictures to look at.
This may well be last post of 2016, don’t know.. but in case it is – happy new year to you! ta for sticking around :-) Looking ahead to 2017.. mainly back to the Andes on two wheels for a few months for me in the spring. Hurrah! Do stay tuned…
