the road home

late light

There are moments on my bike where I wish I could magically bring along a non-cyclist, put them in my pocket or carry them along somehow – just so they could experience the incredible feeling and the beauty of traveling home quietly by bike.

It is a glorious time of year to be on a bicycle.  I love coming home in the late afternoon light with the trees glowing and the long golden shadows, there is a chill in the air, and I have that wonderful tired-but-fulfilled feeling that comes from a beautiful day spent riding from here to there.  I know that a warm bowl of soup is waiting for me in my warm kitchen.  Maybe some spiced tea and a good book later.  I wish there were a way to share the feeling with someone who’s never experienced it.

Why would you want to travel any other way?

time again for gloves and my PINK! visibility jacket 😉

    Great photographs! We had snow today and all the leaves are already off of our trees. I spent two hours riding in light snow/ice/sleet, but a bad day on the bike is better than a good day in the office.

      Thanks much … I must confess I am envying your snow, though. 🙂

      Well, I can’t say it was all that long, but it was definitely country. 😉 Cannot wait to see the birth of Thorpe! (Perfect name, btw).

    I, too ,am enamored with fall. There is nothing like the crispness, the smell of leaves, the beauty of a bike ride through it all. I especially like your first photograph. Enjoy!

    Ok, I’ll sign up to ride in your pocket. I can taste the tea already. It’s wonderful, and I CAN experience it from your description…..LP

    How did you take the last photograph anyway? 😮

    I’m pretty sure I know where you got your inspiration for that last photo. ;-} Don’t you just love new ways of seeing the ride?
    Did you ever post the “what we carry” photos I sent you? Would love to see all the photo responses you received.
