Phew, isn’t this weather hot? I love the warm evenings; returning from work and throwing all the doors and windows wide open.
I’ve been taking full advantage of the beautiful evenings and getting out on my bike. I like to fit 50 miles in a week. A couple of 13 mile rides in the evenings and a 24 mile early Saturday morning.
Here, on the edge of Wakefield we are so lucky to be close to Leeds but with the countryside on our door step.
I find a ride gives me time to turn over my thoughts of the day whilst giving me that excuse for a deserving gin and tonic in the garden later!
It was so beautiful last night that I decided to take you along and show you my usual evening route.
First lets get across the M1
Then straight into the countryside
Past bales drying out in the sun
Crops ready to be gathered in
And some freshly planted
Up hills from hell
To see views from the top
Along leafy lanes
Up narrow lanes
Down narrow lanes
Along delicously cool shady lanes
And finally, almost home, watery views
Chris Froome, I may not be. But my mind and body feels all the better for it.
Love, Lucie xx
