As I Mean to Go On

There are worse ways to start a year than to set off into the low winter’s sun to Bigtown

slanting January sunshine

To unexpectedly find that 26 other people fancy joining you for a bike ride and some warming soup on a fine New Year’s Day

gathering for a ride

And to ride home again with weary legs after 34 miles with the last of the afternoon’s sun at your back*

sunshine and shadow

Happy New Year

*We’ll draw a veil over the accompanying headwind

    Let’s hope 2017 is an improvement on 2016, a truly awful year! You’ve made a good start!

    Not easy, drawing a veil across a headwind. Or so I’d imagine….
