A beautiful evening

A short ride, of eight miles on a beautiful evening up to Cookham Deane and back. The ride there is mostly up-hill, which I took fairly slowly, but it makes for quite an exhilarating return journey, with very little effort involved.

The weather has definitely improved, and there were lots of people grabbing an early pint in the pub gardens.

The other sign of the changing seasons was the number of insects in the air - particularly noticeable speeding through the woods on the ride back. I have spent the last few months perfecting the technique for taking out a hanky to wipe my nose without falling off the bike. It seems I must now learn to ride with my mouth shut.
