The long long way home report

As I said yesterday I took the long way home last night. It was 30 miles door to door and was a very enjoyable ride. I was really pleased with how good I felt riding, it was such a nice evening. The countryside is looking lovely and the views from Whemby towards the Howardian hills is so beautifull. If I was ever able to build my own house thats the view I would want, its my favourite. On the climb up towards Sherriff Hutton a fox strolled out from the trees to cross the road. I don’t know who was more supprised him or me. It seemed an age before he spotted me and turned back from where he came, but in that time I got a good look at him. He was in fine shape and looked to be doing well after such a hard winter, but he needs to watch out for that road or the next time I see him he’ll look like a carpet. Nice to see though. I,m going to the Lakes on Friday for a week and taking the bike with me. Arranged to borrow a bike carrier from my daughter Lucy’s father in law.(don’t know what relationship he is to me!) I haven’t got sorted out with bike transportation since I changed the car. I don’t often carry it, I ride it. Looking forward to riding in a different area.


About robin1953

Hi I am a 57 year old man living in York, with my wife Jill. We have three grown up childred, and two grand children, Tim and Noah. I've been cycling all my life, but I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a few years back, so the cycling became more important. I did well for a few years, but slowly the weight went up. Update; how time flys, I'm now 60 still battling the weight but still riding.
