The joy of cycling part 2

I’ve blogged before about forgetting about all the trappings that we love to surround ourselves with and just getting out on the bike and riding for the sheer joy of it.  Today was one of those days.  I had planned a ride out on the road bike but, because of strong winds, decided on an hour’s ride along the seafront on my Giant Roam.  I had nothing planned and was just wearing shorts, t-shirt and shell jacket.

But you know how it is, after 5 minutes I had the great idea to photograph some of the places I would normally ride past.  And what was going to be an hour’s ride along the seafront turned into nearly four hours and 43 miles.  And that is what it is all about.  Just getting out on the bike for the sheer joy of cycling.

And here’s a short video of the ride:
