Morning bike ride

I got up early on Saturday morning for a bike ride. Can you believe I'm still keeping it up? Easy on the admiration though, it's only on weekends and definitely only when the sun is shining. But Oh Saturday morning was perfect. Sun shining, birds tweeting, water droplets glistening...
 Cat looking at me, thinking are you crazy?! get back in your nice warm bed...

Wind flowing through my hair...

Smug feeling of being active when most people are nursing a hangover...

Sudden end of smug feeling as bike hits a dip and my seat breaks. I climb off and inspect it. Seems simple enough to move back into place I think. Which I do thinking (again smugly) how clever I am fixing it so easily. Except that as I try to ride again it dips forwards and backwards repeatedly making me look ridiculous. Plus it hurts like hell. Double plus I have no idea how to fix it. Since there are people walking their dogs, running, riding bikes past me I decide to take pictures even though I've taken loads of this particular route. I do this mainly so I don't look like a loser who can't ride a bike. Luckily the scene in front of me was spectacular...



So I try to ride a little more back home...

Cue some more passers by, leading to more photos...


I've been meaning to take a picture of this trees roots for ages I love how they look.

Anyway I finally made it home but it took me a while. Next time I'm so taking a huge tool kit, you know just for emergencies and looking ridiculous prevention.
