When life gets busy

I dont stop riding, I just stop writing it seems.

Things are on the busy front at the moment. Finally the house buying is moving forward and we're in the throws of wedding planning and the associated stuff that goes with it. Plus work as usual.

The usual commutes are now happily getting more daylight filled, albeit still windy and damp. As have the rough stuff rides. Not so many photo ops when you're head down into the rain and just pedalling.

Rossendale. This is part of my daily commute - good for RSF rides too

But over the next few weeks posts will be picking up - one or two trips on the horizon that should bring plenty of lovely views with them.

And whilst winter is happening around the world, some other Bloggers are taking the opportunity to use it to interview other bloggers & hear about their worlds of cycling. Chasing Mailboxes & Suze Cycling have both been kind enough to share the riding here with their readers. These are two blogs I really enjoy reading & seeing pictures on- personally I love the whole Travel Journal aspect of reading about cycling around the world. And of course reaffirming just how important cake & caffeine is to cyclists everywhere!

Cycling Surprises

That lovely moment when you round a corner to be greeted by something unexpected and wonderful.

It's been quite a lovely week of commutes here and last weekend we did a wonderful urbanish RSF ride around North Manchester. I'm always amazed at how much green there is up there, plus a visit to a local tea shop in an old mill - which I've never seen from the back angle before - pretty (in a post industrial way) :-)

In the world of reading about cycling, Chasing Mailboxes has been running a series about why people blog about cycling.
