Cycling – Holme to Hutton Roof

Cycling – Holme to Hutton Roof

To justify the cost of buying a bike I have to ride it!

And, at the moment, I can’t get out on long walks quite as often as I would like, so a couple of hours on a bike takes me much farther than a couple of hours on my feet.

So far I have just started to explore the small lanes from Holme.

Not yet fitted the bike rack on the car.

I’m getting used to using different muscles and may be improving how I use the gears.

Not quite so clunky as at first.

And on a fine day there are some rather fantastic views very close to Holme.
