And Now, with Pictures

Some time ago, I attempted to give a flavour of my ride to the papershop & back in words, having not mastered the technology of taking photos or videos while on the move. I still haven’t mastered it, although I did find out almost the hard way why it is not a good idea to take your camera out of your pocket using your primary braking hand while still moving. What I did do, however, is stop and take a few photographs along the way, to give you a flavour of the ride.

If you’re a cyclist, you’ll understand why the resulting slideshow is called ‘from the top of each hill.’

  1. Reminiscent of the Mendip Hills in Somerset!

    Very nice.

    One wonders how you cope with all that traffic. 😉

  2. Nice pictures but the words were better. OOACS arrived today, so check your royalty statement!

    WW – I know, it’s terrible isn’t it? I think I encountered two cars the whole ride.
    Richard – I shall do! Hope you enjoy it..

  4. GOM1 says:

    Wow – it looks lovely. How do you ever find time to do anything else?

  5. Mrs H. is going to read it first…

    GOM1 – I wait for it to rain. It doesn’t usually take long
    Richard – what, you mean she didn’t buy her own copy? For shame…

    Far be it for me, someone who doesn’t even own a bike, to criticise, but aren’t they more undulations than hills? 🙂

  8. disgruntled says:

    You may be right, but it’s hard to capture a hill in all its glory, I’ve found. And besides, that’s the view from the top, looking forward – not from the bottom of the hill, looking up, because I’m buggered if I’m going to stop then…

    I’m sure that it’s very pleasant in good weather but otherwise…! xx

  10. disgruntled says:

    There was a biting cross-wind as well, which you can’t see in the picture

  11. Nick says:

    Breathtaking views (as you almost say).

  12. disgruntled says:

    I feed ’em & you knock ’em in.
