A Rewarding Ride
Should we go out, should we stay in…? I have a goal for the year, 6,000 km, and I can’t waste any days decent enough to ride if I want to make it. It was 6°C when we left and 4°C by the time we got home and that was good enough.
The ride through the woods was a muddy one. When the frozen paths thaw they are particularly muddy. By the time we got home the bikes were a mess and we were also covered with sand and grit. I think we will have to avoid those paths for a while.

Very interesting fungi. Lovely rainbow pics. I’m sure you’ll make your goal. That’s quite a feat!
What a stunning rainbow shot! And how well planned, to have it centered over the bike path.
I’d never heard of mushroom troops before, but I like it. One source I found states that cluster is also appropriate: “ Mushrooms that are in a close group but not close enough to be called a cluster are said to be in a troop.”. So it’s a judgement call, apparently. Tc his definitely looks like a troop to me.
Thanks, Scott. Yes, and I thought troop was a more colorful word than cluster. Fungi colonies grow in a petri dish or old bread apparently.
Wonderful rainbow photo! And, a long shadows too.!
The double rainbow over the bike path is a great photo. And love the colors in the fungi photo.
Oh, that rainbow arching completely over the trail is incredible. Perfect timing. I like “troop” of mushrooms as well.
I know you will reach your goal. Especially, like me, you are not really counting miles ?. Might reach my goal as well.
Well, yes, that was worth the ride! Gorgeous rainbow and the fungi looked like they came out of a storybook! Good luck on attaining the goal!
A double rainbow, brilliant. 6000kms, is more than a hundred kms a week, all the best.
