Cycle Days Challenge: March

A Month without Precedent

No need for explanations as we all know what has made this month unique in the worst way. The effects of the coronavirus and the measures to prevent its spreading are omnipresent. That said, I have been riding my bike where it is safe, and that is on the empty paths in the woods around where we live. You don’t forget the pandemic… More on my website

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

    Starting today, I’m going to make a monthly selection of my favorite Suzanne-Photo. The winner for March is:

    The one with the old wooden bench in the foreground and the bike further back among the trees.

    You may have ridden less days than you wish, but the rides you did are beautifully shared through your photos. I feel the same way about the pandemic when I am on my bike. I don’t forget about it, but I am not freaking about getting sick with it. At least for those moments I am on my saddle.

    Do stay well Suzanne, and guard against that bronchial infection. The best to you and Janos.

    Beautiful photos! I’m so glad you could at least get out some days. Being out in nature does wonders for mental and physical well-being.

    So glad you are staying well Suzanne. Even with few miles ridden, you made them count with your photographs. Lovely place to ride and [sort of] forget about all the world’s chaos for a bit. Like Greg, I’m making a vote for favorite photo, but I can’t seem to narrow it down to one. I’ll say top three in no particular order of preference: 1) Pond picture, 2) Sunlight streaming through trees with bike on right side of path, and 3) Bike leaning against power pole next to blooming almond (or cherry?) tree. That is not to say the other photos aren’t all lovely as well, because they truly all have a peaceful beauty to them. And peaceful beauty is MUCH appreciated by Hopkins & I these days. Cheers & happy walking or pedaling.

    Great photos all. Sunlight filtering thru the trees especially.

    No problem social distancing here on the rural roads, hardly anyone there, and those who are are in a car.
    Back in town I came up behind someone walking 3 pit bulls — given Scott’s experience that was somewhat un-nerving, but they were well behaved.

    You definitely have some beautiful paths in the woods. Good to see you out as much as possible and that there are some blossoms!
