After a break of eleven days, I was back on my bike. Eleven days! I don’t think I’ve been off my bike for that long for years, except when we were on trips without our bicycles. We have been having cold days now and I’m getting more cautious about catching any kind of cold or infection so I limited myself to walking. But today was sunny and about 5°C, tomorrow and next week it’s going to get even warmer, so a ride was in order.
The first stop on our outing was to bring back a pile of mostly wine bottles to the recycling bins. Does that count as a contribution to the local economy? I decided it somehow does.
From there we took off on one of our regular loops. You can look at the map HERE. Although there are some spring flowers on the forest floor, the woods are still kind of monochrome. I’m not complaining, the sun is shining and it isn’t windy, but some more color will be welcome.
Riding through the villages and woods, there was no obvious indication of the shutdown. There was some house construction going on, some kids out with their mothers, it all looked so normal.
And now a little song for the monthly challenge: WHOO-PI-TI-YI-YO
