I started cycling 15 years ago for the exercise.
Motto: Slow and steady is the way to go.
I now spend a lot of time on the trail as a volunteer.
I like to travel as well, normally by car but for the long distances I will fly.
This morning I drove to York, then cycled to Mount Stewart. These Marsh Marigolds were near Tracadie Cross but there were many more near Mount Stewart.
The trailsign advising tou are in Mount Stewart.
Note the flag, a stiff breeze on my back coming out but it was hard work for the first few km along the river going back.
As I was leaving York, I stopped at Vessey's and got some seeds.
After lunch I cut the grass and then planted onion sets, carrots, lettuce and radish.
Sunny in the morning, then clouded over, light showers this evening. A high of 18 but windy at times.
