Big Crowd

"We're in a giant car heading towards a brick wall and everyone is arguing over where they're going to sit" ~ David Suzuki

A wonderful day to Ride Planet Earth. 73 people turned up on a dry, bright grey morning. It was cool, 6 deg C. It is easy to be smug when the ride went very well, and every one enjoyed themselves. But I cannot be smug alone. I can plan the route, but it could not have gone well without assistance. Thanks to all those people who helped out on today's ride. You have every right to be smug too. Two people had technical problems at the start, of the unexpected type, and there were four punctures, myself included!!


On 6th December, cyclists across the planetwill be showing their willingness to take action against dangerous climate change in Ride Planet Earth, Rides coincide with the Copenhagen Climate Talks. The Spokes Sunday Ride on 6th December will be part of Ride Planet Earth.


A roundabout way to see the world

"Cyclers see considerable more of this beautiful world than any other class of citizens. A good bicycle, well applied, will cure most ills this flesh is heir to." ~ Dr. K. K. Doty of New York, How to Bicycle, 1892

Sixteen people turned up for the last Summer Spokes Ride of 2009, although the effect was of a first ride of autumn. A long ride to Culross in Fife, and a round trip of around 60 miles. A lovely day, and while the wind was a bit stronger than expected, it wasn't too bad, and it felt warm out of the wind.


Tree Lined and Friendly

A lovely day. A little breezy, but not too cumbersome. A true early autumn day, so the route we took was deliberately tree-lined. Enjoy the sun shining through trees, summer was saying goodbye. A reasonable turnout on a day while cool, felt pleasant. It stayed dry and bright.


A quiet ride to enjoy the last days of summer

"I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

A grey day saw 21 people turn up for the trip to Gifford, a slightly longer ride, a distance of nearly 80km (50 miles) The weather forecast was of the DDR variety. It said it would be dry with sunny intervals. The morning was very grey, later with persistant, but not heavy, rain. after lunch was dry and breezy. I prefer the blue, but without the grey, we would not enjoy the blue so much.
