New Bike ...Yay ......10 Mile ride ...Saddle sore ....Ow ....

Bought a new second hand bike yesterday and went on a 10 mile bike ride today .....we left from Common Marsh and cycled to Timsbury about 5 miles away and back again ......

Horsbridge disused station were serving afternoon teas so we stopped for a cuppa ....Think I could live in a disused railway carriage ....Tea on Platform 1 ...

ROAR !!!.........

OUCH .........I need a hot bath .....

Jim looking as fresh as a daisy ....he cycles every day ......xx


  1. Oh, you might get two comments, wasn't properly working. Sore, yes, I would be but good for you!!! Jim is sporting a new look sans the beard and a haircut too? Looking good. xox Corrine

  2. what a nice ride! the bike and the scenary! :0)

  3. A good soak will sort you out, I've done the same myself many moons ago, got a new bike and I went for miles, forgetting I had to cycle all the way back, ouch. Looks like a great day out :)

  4. Congratulations on the new bike. I love the lush green of your surroundings. My husband is a bit of a rail fanatic, and last summer we spent a couple of days at a motel made up of converted rail cabooses in Northern California. It was quit cozy actually :)

  5. aww lovely photos, love that first of the avenue of trees...

  6. Wonderful pictures Lorna, funny enough Nige got my bike out and gave it the once over for me....Lidl had some gel seats so i hope this will i would like to get a basket for the front of it! x

  7. thanks for the RIDE!!! :]

    biking is fun...and tiring...and makes your muscles ache...if they're not used to it!! ha!

    but it's such good exercise...and you can get to where you're going a little quicker than walking!

    have fun with your...NEW...used bike! :]

    ((FYI: by the latest post didn't make it into google reader AGAIN! OR any other FEED! so please go visit me when u get a chance...suwannee river post!))

  8. awesome, awesome and awesome. I'm duly impressed with such a long trek on a new ride. Now go soak your bum.

    Did you watch the wedding? Wasn't she lovely? They look good together.

  9. What fun! I'd ride more if I had a cool place like this to ride to.

  10. Hi Lorna,
    Thought I'd drop by and pay you a visit! You are inspiring me to dust off my bike and have a little ride!....maybe 2 miles though :0)
    Lovely photos!
