…and ready for my first bicycle ride of the season.

All Prepared

I prepared dinner as soon as I arrived home from work and put it in the oven to cook whilst I went for a cycle ride in the early evening sunshine. The weather was perfect and I wished I could have stayed out a little longer but I was on a time schedule. The veg needed turning on after 40 minutes. Despite my best intentions I was a little late back due to getting into conversation with a lady who was walking her dog. Seeing me on my bicycle had inspired her to go home and pump up the tyres on her bike so she could go for a cycle ride tomorrow.

I turned the oven down and the veg on when I arrived home. Whilst the veg was cooking Mr C laid the patio table ready for dinner whilst I sorted out my cycle helmet hair! It is always nice to eat on the patio but it is not quite the same without the backdrop of the branches of ‘My Oak Tree’ blowing in the breeze and catching the sunlight in its branches.

      Thank you :-) There are some nice pathways near to my house. Some are fine to travel alone, but others are better traveled with a companion :-)

    Cycling, and talking, whilst dinner cooks – a good way to multitask, Cherie!

  3. You could have foraged some fresh stuff from the woods.
    I see you’ve got a big basket on your bike, use it. ;)

    The shadow Cherie avec la Bicyclette is just the ticket for the Nourishing Obscurity ‘Girls and Bikes’ file. :)

    It is getting a bit too cold here for my electric bike.

      Let’s see if Mr ‘NO’ notices ;-)

      It has been way to chilly here for cycling (for pleasure) until this week. I really enjoyed my little adventure and was half wishing that I had asked Mr C to turn the oven on half an hour after I had left for my cycle ride so that I could have enjoyed my sunshine cycle ride just a little longer ;-)

    Great selfie :) I know ‘all’ about bikeriding and the fun of it, you see so many things.
    I hope the meal was good :)
