Cycling Quote 1

I shall be off-line next week – we are going, in company with our eldest son, daughter-in-law and grandson, for a ‘bucket and spade’ holiday in South Wales – so I thought I would amuse you with some quotations while I am away. Two more to follow, on Wednesday and Friday.

“When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in Scientific American (1896)

    That is a new one “Bucket and spade’ holiday. We are doing the same in about a week – just a few days down by the shore. Odd how the sand at different bodies of water has so many different names, the beach, the shore (I think a north American catch praise if you will)…or sea side. Enjoy your time away with family.

    It’s been to hot to take out my bike. Even at 9 am feels close to 90 F or 32 C. I think though I’ll take a quick venture to the end of my yard before it gets even hotter!
