More Trees and Wide Wednesday Results

One of the things I decided to do yesterday was to buy an e-bike. It's something I'd thought about before but had put off because of the cost. A budget e-bike is not going to work in the hilly environment of Devon hills, especially living on a valley side as I do. A bit of web searching, a couple of phone calls and my bike was delivered by a nice man yesterday evening on his way home from work.

In the situation we're now in, it seems an ideal solution. We can't use our cars, and walking doesn't get me far enough. A bike's also ideal because in narrow lanes where you can't stop a car, you can easily stop a bike.

A rainy day today but around mid morning it stopped and the sun came out. Helmet, hi-viz and I'm off, a little bit hesitantly at first (I haven't ridden much in the last 20 years) but I was soon into it and having fun. I was out for about half an hour and I arrived back home as the sky darkened and just a little before the rain started again. These tree's have been blipped before but they're looking fresh with their new leaves. I've also added an extra of the gate between the trees.
