Rich and I went on a lovely MTB ride last weekend, we rode about 32km through the plots and farms around Benoni and stopped briefly for a short rest at a nearby coffee shop. I’m getting used to my cleats now and can unclip them when necessary, they still scare me a little but it gets better with each ride.
The Cosmos flowers are always in bloom around Easter time here and they give a gorgeous show of colour. We also came across this sweet horse grazing in a field and then spotted a windmill, I just had to stop and take photos. I know I should be riding more and taking less pics but there are so many beautiful things to see and I have to stop and capture them.
Mountain biking is really a wonderful sport, I used to ride horses when I was younger and loved riding out in the open, this is very similar, except, of course, I’m on a bike but I’m out in the open again and it’s just lovely! It’s also ‘me’ time and I’m glad that I’m allowing myself a few moments to recharge.
Hope you’re having a great week and that you’ve managed to have some time to yourself.
