A lovely bike ride

Hi all

I got out on my bike today as the weather was so much better, I just had one very short shower whilst out. It's really sunny here now but was cloudy when I went out but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The beauty of cycling along tracks and not on the road, it's so much more enjoyable.

I cycled 34.8 miles which I'm happy with. Another bike ride tomorrow and then I'm with the grandchildren on Friday so no cycling that day.

Hope you all have a lovely evening.

Stay safe and well.

Alicia ;)

Thank you, I just had to take those photos. It was a lovely ride and it was just one quick shower.

Thank you and you have a lovely evening as well.🙏🌈😊🐎

What lovely photos cf, especially the horses - that's quite a rare looking horse, it's gorgeous. Are they from the Dartmoor herd? Thanks for sharing. xx

Thank you Buddy, it was great and I loved seeing the horses.🐎🙏🌈😊

Thank you, I love my bike and a bit of a challenge. I enjoyed every minute of it. The IBS I have is so much better as I'm following the low fodmap diet, I couldn't have ridden the distance before the diet.

I'm sorry you can't get on your bike and hope you can soon. Wow where you live sounds stunning.🌈😊👍🙏

Thank you Jerry, yes I really loved the look of that horse, it was raining a little when I photographed the horses.

Take care Jerry and look after yourself.


Thank you, I had such a lovely ride and nature is awesome and getting out in the countryside feels so good.

Thank you, I love my bike.

Alicia 🙏🐎👍😊🌈

Fantastic ride you have had today. Do you think that mottled pony knows how stunning he looks. Imaging if you had taken a photograph of just that pony, in the snow, what a picture. 🐴😊

Thank you. It's 24/7 , it will build up to a crecendo, then it's like this for a while,, ease off a little but only for a few minutes and then back up it goes. Hey ho- I will keep smiling 😊 xxxx ❤️💜🌈🤗

I really don't know how you do it Lynne, you are to be admired. I know what you are saying though as if you give in you'll feel even worse.

Thinking of you.

Take care

Alicia xxxx💜💜

Thank you so much for your kind words. The fibro would be bad enough on its own without everything else. But when I read about TheDrivenSnow mine is nothing. Xxxx

That is nice! I get to ride tomorrow. Short one with good hills. Nice and warm here for the moment.

Perfect scenery. What kind of a horse is that in the upper right? Looks sort of zebra-ish.

in reply to daveh121

Ooh, enjoy your ride, hills are a very good workout. It's warm enough for cycling but not sitting here.

Thank you. All the horses are Dartmoor ponies and Dartmoor is in the South West of the UK.

Have a good ride.🙏🐎🚵‍♀️🚴‍♀️😊

It was wonderful. Thanks.

I will have to look into those horses. They are intriguing to me.

My wife and I used to do horse patrol for the park service. We were tasked with taking care of the horse as well. That was a fun job.

Our horse really liked visiting with people so it took a long time to get anywhere. He would always sniff around people’s back packs looking for food.

He also liked to eat poison oak. He would snag some to eat, and the vines would trail back on to my bare legs.

in reply to daveh121

Excellent, glad you enjoyed it.

It's very unusual to see them with markings like that, they are lovely ponies.

Wow, that was an amazing job, I'd love that.

What a lovely friendly horse, very inquisitive.

Oh what a thing to eat, bet your legs suffered with that.

Fortunately I am not affiliated by poison oak too much which has been very nice.

in reply to daveh121

That's very fortunate which I'm pleased for you.

What lovely photos,the horses look great,such a stunner with the mottled markings,and the views are amazing, you are so lucky to have that on your doorstep, keep safe and keep enjoying the bike rides 😁

in reply to Judyspal

Thank you, I particularly loved the mottled horse. I agree, the views are good from where I was. I do love the countryside and do count my blessings that i can ride to somewhere like that.🚴‍♀️🐎🙏🚴‍♀️

Woww The picture of that black, and white horse is beautiful. Is that a zebra hybrid ? ? ?

in reply to RLN-overcomer

Thank you. I have to say I'd never seen a mottled Dartmoor Pony until I came across that one. A friend of mine has commented on my Facebook post and said it's a Appaloosa type pony.

Wow this Appoloosa pony is beautiful. We can go our whole lives and not see some amazing creations. OMG I am glad you got to see, and experience something you have not seen in all of the 1,000,s of miles you have traveled on bike, and foot.

in reply to RLN-overcomer

Thank you, yes it was very fortuous to see such a beautiful pony. Wildlife is amazing and that's the beauty of walking and cycling.
