A beautiful bike ride

β€’32 Replies

Hi all

It's a beautiful day in Devon, hardly any wind and beautiful blue skies, what a difference.

I made the most of it and rode one of my favourite routes to Yelverton on the edge of Dartmoor. I couldn't resist taking a photo of the ponies, there weren't that many around today.

I cycled 34.784 miles.

In the garden this afternoon cutting hedges with hubby.

Hope you've all had a good morning and have a lovely afternoon.

What a lovely ride and I’m glad you have good weather. It’s chilly here today with a cold wind. Make the most of it while you can. x

Thank you Ali. It's lovely and sunny but the breeze is fresh, quite Autumal. Think we've lost the heat xx

Thank you, I do love horsesπŸ™πŸ˜ŠπŸŒˆπŸŽ

Thank you Jerry and we've had stunning weather here. Hubby has now cut the hedge and we've both done the clearing up as it's a lot quicker to cut it than it is to clear up. We've 2 more hedges to cut but they are a lot easier. There always seems to be a white horse on Dartmoor, I only saw 3 horses in total.

Have a lovely evening Jerry.πŸ™πŸŽπŸŒˆπŸ˜‹πŸŒ€πŸ˜Š

It’s such a beautiful place you cycle through. That is a great distance. Well done. Pictures are wonderful. 😊🌸🌈

It really is lovely there, it makes the distance easier because it's so beautiful.

Thank you, it's been a beautiful day.πŸ™πŸ˜ŠπŸŽπŸŒˆπŸš΄β€β™€οΈ

Morning honey. Keep hold of the gorgeous weather, we're coming down in October 🀞😊xx

I will definitely try and October can be beautiful with all the lovely colours of the trees. xxπŸ™πŸŒˆπŸ˜ŠπŸŒ³πŸŒ²πŸš΄β€β™€οΈπŸŽ

Beautiful pictures! Beautiful horses! Thanks for sharing! I feel like I’ve just been given, a breath of fresh air, and normalcy, amongst the chaotic life, that has changed greatly, since COVID 19, and civil unrest, joblessness, and political machinations, here in the USA. It’s amazing, in a bad way, to see how much my country has changed, in the last 6 months! I would never have believed it, if somebody predicted this is the way it would be, a year ago, in August, 2020! This summer has been a summer like no other, I’ve seen, in my lifetime! When is the nightmare going to be over?

I'm so glad you like the photos and it's made you feel more normal. This year has been a year like no-one could ever have contemplated. It makes you more appreciative of the normal things in life.

Stay safe and take care


Lovely photos Alicia. x

Beautiful photos and blue skies, cold here in south east and ch on. Yesterday visited my adopted sheep Molly and her 2 lambs. There are 8 Wiltshire Horn mums with their lambs and they live on a small nature reserve looked after by volunteers. It's a nice place to visit with a short walk. You would be cycling there but I drive!! πŸ‘‹πŸ˜

in reply to diana1998

It was stunning and it's the same here today but warmer.

Ooh how lovely to have an adopted sheep with her lambs and on a nature reserve, what could be better, sounds idyllic.πŸπŸ‘πŸŒ€πŸŽπŸš΄β€β™€οΈ

Yes, it's very out of the way and not many people know about it,so really tranquil. Will take a photo next time!

Well have to say its a long time since I road that far on a bicycle. In fact I recall my mum panicing cause she thought I had got lost. But it was lovely riding down country lanes in the fresh air. Thank you for the photos .

in reply to katieoxo60

I love it and you can't beat the country,in fact I can hear sheep in the distance whilst out in the garden. I love cycling, it gives me a sense of freedom.πŸŽπŸŒ€πŸš΄β€β™€οΈπŸ™πŸŒ²πŸŒ³πŸŒˆ

Wish I was able to still cycle, but I did go out to the locks by car yesterday only my second trip out since lock down was lifted.Enjoy your day weather is still nice, change predicted though. Some of the places will be quieter once the children are back at school.

in reply to katieoxo60

I'm glad you managed to get out by the locks always lovely around canals.

Yes weather is good here in Devon, set to change tomorrow for a couple of days.

Stay safe and well.πŸ™πŸŒˆβ˜€οΈ

Well done decent distance I love Dartmoor keep it up

in reply to jeffmayer

Thank you Jeff. The only thing that stops me is the weather as I don't feel safe in heavy rain and wind.πŸŒ³πŸŒˆπŸ™πŸš΄β€β™€οΈπŸŒ€πŸŽ


U r an inspiration for sure.

I do good to walk around the short block with our golden retriever....😁
