Bike ride up coast yesterday

I tell ya, when I get on my new bike, it feels like I’m on a motorcycle. Each time I take the first couple of cranks going down the road, I can’t believe how good it feels. Here we go! Yesterday I headed up the coast off-road. The bike with its air shocks takes potholes and rocks with ease. Surf was up, tide low, air filled with sweet negative-ion-charged sea air.

Then I rode out to a secret pond in the hills, where swimming is great in the Spring:

On the way home as sun was setting, here was a herd of 14 deer. Never seen a flock like this.Each day of my life right now seems so filled with interesting stuff I can only get a fraction of it down.

  1. Lloyd, you are a magic person. I think that to myself often enough when I read your posts; just wanted you to know that I thought as much. Keep at it.

  2. It would be good to see some helmet camera footage for one of your bike rides, any chance of taking us along as passengers for a while please?

    It seems the helmet camera is popular with cyclists over here in the UK, sadly it is coming in useful for reporting dangerous driving around cyclists rather then great views of the countryside.
