CLC Spring 2020/6: Solitary Trails and a Purchase

I didn’t get out on my bike until late afternoon, around five. Not that I was expecting there to be less people out, I just didn’t get my act together sooner. But that was perhaps a good thing. The late afternoon light was lovely. My plan was to do a standard route through the woods.

Still enough people out

I decided to take a less frequented side path. The winter mud has dried and all the trails seem to have a nice firm surface now. That was a good decision. I was almost alone but for the occasional cyclist.

No people and a smooth, hard surface here
I discovered this chainsaw sculpture that I hadn’t seen yet – or at least I can’t remember it.
I was familiar with this one, a few meters down the road.
A green mossy tree, nature’s sculpture
I’m wondering where this path will take me.
Once I’m out of the woods, a spring vista open up.
Here, too, the cyclists are few and far between. I know the road and finish my loop.

But where’s the purchase? Where’s the chocolate?

I have a real purchase with me this time. My bicycle didn’t have a bottle cage and I ordered one from Amazon. I had the bottle already and was happy that it fit.

The purchase, a bottle cage

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. Cycling and photography are my favorite things.

    What a lovely ride – and that sun does bring out the colours. Good to see some more green coming back – I love the contrast of the light green in the tips of the trees with the green of the conifers and the field.

    It’s good to see people out there …sort of. Everyone was keeping distance it looks like. Nice photos.

    Beautiful photos, mossy green tree particularly.
    Lots of Small Dog Alert days here and not particularly warm, and made less so by the wind.
