Another bike ride

β€’33 Replies

Hi all

I rode my bike into the city centre, the long way round, to catch up with a friend in a cafe which was lovely.

I cycled back home the long way round again but couldn't take any photos as it was starting to rain. Fortunately I only had a few drops on me which was a blessing. I cycled 25.4 miles.

Hope you've all had a good day.

Oh it's really worth the wait, it was great to go inside particularly as the weather wasn't the best here in Devon today.

My day has been so good Alicia

Thanks for your reply! I’m hoping that we can all have some good news regarding the Covid19, but my instincts are saying

Better safe than sorry!

I’m following WHO , and more inclined to do what they are recommending. Take care and all the very best!😊

in reply to Sunfloweronline

That's amazing, imso pleased to hear that.😊🌈

Well they seem to be doing well with the vaccine but I totally agree with you, better safe than sorry. If we all continue to wear masks for the next few months it should help alot, it should protect us a lot more.

Yes same here. It's not easy wearing a mask with glasses but hey ho, that's much better than risking the virus.😊🌈

What no pics??? 😁😁 I'm gonna buy you a waterproof camera!! 😁 I'm glad you enjoyed meeting up with your friend. xx

in reply to springcross

Ha ha, love your reply. Let's just say I'm not keen on getting wetπŸ˜‰. It was great meeting up xxπŸ’œπŸ™πŸ˜Š

Wow, well done to you, that’s a really big ride, l think l need to call myself crazy-unfitness as the minds very keen on the idea of exercise but my body just doesn’t translate into any actual physical action, but you’re posts are very inspiring to me, in a sort, maybe one day kind of fashion! Holly

in reply to Holly333

Thank you Holly. Believe you me if there's an exercise I don't like I don't really want to do it ie. an exercise bike, don't like them.

The answer is it has to be enjoyable.πŸš΄β€β™€οΈπŸ˜ŠπŸŒˆ

Thank you Jerry, it was a good day and the rain we had was only light. It's been a busy day as I had lunch when I got home, did the grocery shopping and on the way home picked up a click and collect order and then went to another shop and bought more compost for the other planters. It was a good day.

Hope you're enjoying your evening.

Alicia πŸŒˆπŸš΄β€β™€οΈπŸ˜Š

Yes, you’re right, l do enjoy exercise, but only if someone else is doing it. But....l do spend all day running around after my three yr old granddaughter, and breaking into a sweat, so when she wants me to chase her round the park it must SURELY count as a sprint, well lm exhausted so l hope it does 🀞🀞🀞

in reply to Holly333

Oh I love it Haha. Yes grandchildren keep you going, my granddaughters love me running around with them, they are now 4 and 8, love them to bits. Aren't grandchildren with their weight in gold.🌻🌈😊

Well done Alicia. Please send me some of your fitness and energy. 😊x

in reply to Sheila_G

Thank you Sheila. I've not been out today as I was baking this morning for hubby and pottering around in the garden earlier this afternoon. I'll be out walking tomorrow though as I cannot stand missing out on exercise. :) xx

Well done you must be fit anyone who rides a bike knows how hard it is keep it up

in reply to jeffmayer

Thank you Jeff, I love the fact that you feel so free on a bike. :)

You make me feel tired just reading about your bike rides,hubby and myself both have bikes and fully intend using them one day,the car drivers around here seem so fast and we are very wary of going on the roads,keep safe.

in reply to Judyspal

Hi Judy

I can totally understand as it's a car's world isn't it, car does seem to be king. I'm pleased to say that where I am in Devon I'm seeing a lot more bikes which is good. Fortunately we do have some pavements that are joint cycle/walkways and I always use them. I keep off the road as much as I can.

Take care :)

Wow - brilliant -Im so jealous- I used to be able to go out for bike rides for about 2 hours.Now I cant because I have ILD (Iinterstitial lung disease) so I only have minimal breathing capability -permanently so when the weather gets better Im going to try going just down the road & back -thats about all I can manage & even thats tiring

in reply to Sara_2611

Hi Sara

All I can say is well done to you for looking at cycling down the road and back, that takes something to do that when you have such a condition.

Take care and look after yourself.

Thanks Alicia -Ive no idea how I got this disease. I wouldnt mind if I smoked because that wouldve been a consequence but I dont smoke -theres no family history 0

On speaking to my initial doctor who diagnosed it not only was I shocked I mentioned to her that in the 90s & very early noughties & middle noughties I lived with respective partners & now & again I smoked so I asked her if this was bubbling under for many years & now come up & she said she didnt think so but Im convinced of it

in reply to Sara_2611

It's very hard when there's no rhyme or reason why we get some conditions, it would be easier to cope with I feel if there was an underlying reason.

I'm actually with you on that one and doctors of course don't know everything, they are General Practitioners and of course don't specialise in certain conditions. It must be a hard job being a doctor, particularly as they have to keep up with so many changes in medicine. You wouldn't mind so much if you'd smoked a lot but every now and again, this does seem very cruel to me.

Take care xx

I understand what youre saying

What I meant by the smoking was Im convinced that smoking very now & again back in the day caused this ILD & told the doctor this but she didnt think so although I thought so -that it was

I was saying that if i was a regular smoker then ILD would be a consequence but because theres no history in the family -is why I dont understand why ive got this disease

I agree with you, smoking to any degree is very bad. My hubby is an ex smoker, he gave up nearly 33 years ago but had smoked for around 16 years and is asthmatic.

I would say the same, you weren't a regular smoker so why but sometimes things happen and we don't know why. I honestly do feel for you and wish I had an answer.

Take care xx
