Bike Ride Deflation


Thought I would go out on a bike ride last Sunday as I felt a bit unfit and my road bike needed an outing, I haven’t used it for well over a year. The road bike should be easier on tarmac than the mountain bike I reckoned, but It was hard work on the way back, I put it down to my fitness level until I looked at the bike this morning and found the rear tyre was flat. A slow puncture I guess, it would be the rear wheel of course. Despite that the ride was good as was the weather, the countryside had green’d up nicely after the recent rain.


Wild Flowers


It’s great to see an area left for wildflowers beside the crops, the insects and wildlife must really benefit.

      It’s a lovely old church, I met the church warden a couple of years ago and he showed around, quite plain but calm inside. I quit smoking completely about 5 years ago, feel so much better now, can’t believe I smoked 20 a day 😮
