Le Tour de Wakefield

Posted by

Phew, isn’t this weather hot? I love the warm evenings; returning from work and throwing all the doors and windows wide open.

I’ve been taking full advantage of the beautiful evenings and getting out on my bike. I like to fit 50 miles in a week. A couple of 13 mile rides in the evenings and a 24 mile early Saturday morning.

Here, on the edge of Wakefield we are so lucky to be close to Leeds but with the countryside on our door step.

I find a ride gives me time to turn over my thoughts of the day whilst giving me that excuse for a deserving gin and tonic in the garden later!

It was so beautiful last night that I decided to take you along and show you my usual evening route.

First lets get across the M1

Then straight into the countryside

Past bales drying out in the sun

Crops ready to be gathered in

And some freshly planted

Up hills from hell

To see views from the top

Along leafy lanes

Up narrow lanes

Down narrow lanes

Along delicously cool shady lanes

And finally, almost home, watery views

Chris Froome, I may not be. But my mind and body feels all the better for it.
