April 28/18: Five Riders; 2 Hrs 42; 71 Kms; 496 Metres

Hello. Time  passes but somethings never change. Yes, it’s  me at the keyboard disturbing your afternoon quiet, again. It’s my pleasure to write and your burden to read. Another cycling season is upon us. It’s time to pedal like the billy oh. It’s too bad the guy in the sky didn’t read the memo about the start of the cycling calendar. All this to say that while we rode this morning we will not ride tomorrow. I have had enough of snow. I won’t be riding on Sunday. I’ve been spoilt by fairer climes in faraway places. Indulgent and particular, I am. It comes with age. So, does reflection and gratitude. It’s then that good friends and special times take on a patina of rarity, there being fewer of them.

I thank CAM & KO for a memorable morning.

Will post details of next Saturday’s ride on Friday, May 04. Where else would you rather be?

Look forward to hearing from you should you feel inclined to write.

Okay, Stay fit, fine, firm always! Bye-bye, ac.

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to the body and soul. Keep close to Nature’s heart…and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.~ John Muir”
