Sunday’s bike ride

Somewhere in the “mountains” of southern Hampshire on our bike ride last Sunday with members of the Southampton branch of Cycling UK (formerly known as Cycle Touring Club). Many cyclists enjoy the challenge of a good hill climb. I have to say that I find this to be the least enjoyable part although I do enjoy a good whizz down the other side. My favourite part of the day is stopping in a cafe and eating cake with like-minded people and not feeling the slightest bit guility about it.

Some of these nutters have cycled from Land’s End to John O’Groats. It’s not a journey I’d fancy doing by car, never mind on a bike.

..and what a place to do it. This is Stoer Head and its lighthouse just to the north of Lochinver, NW Scotland. Leigh and her Little Blue Van are off to the right and I’m sat enjoying a cup of tea in the typical baking heat of a late spring day. A shot from May 2015.
