Well, it seems I’ve been blogging for a year now. Where has the time gone? It’s flown. Anyway, thank you to those of you have taken the time to read my ramblings.
The weather hasn’t been quite so awful this week. There has still been an easterly wind blowing quite strongly but at least the sun has shown it’s face occasionally.
On Monday morning early , as in 6.00am, DH and I got out on the river run but he wasn’t feeling all that great. Since then he’s come down with some sort throat virus.
Tuesday morning , I had decided to cycle to Stockton to see a knitted exhibition. This was put on by Greens Lane Methodist church for their 60th annivesary and was borrowed from the United Reform church in Hartlepool. They had knitted hundreds of figures to depict Bible stories. Here are a couple of my favourites.
It had been a fairly easy ride with the wind on our backs but the return journey was a push into the wind. We went back via Thornaby and came across this new signpost which has been erected in the past few weeks.
When we cycled to the top of the bank, we came across another one and on closer inspection I saw it was very modern.
See, you can scan it to connect to a website. Modern technology. This shows that there is a new heritage park that has begun to be established in this area.
I’ve mainly riden the Dahon this week and I’ve seen a few other people on folders. All seemed to be struggling into the wind, and it really made me appreciated the gearing on the Speed TR. The more I ride this bike, the more I appreciated what a great bike it
is. Don’t get me wrong, my Koga is fantastic and for all longer ride, she is my go to bike , but the Speed is so convenient for quick shorter rides. Oh and one more thing, I have been riding without my ears being covered up, so Spring must nearly be here.
Happy riding one and all
