Choose bike. Mountain Bike. Blue sky, white clouds. Nothing to rush back for. Need this. Bring a camera. Bottle, shoulders liberated from Camelbak. Wet under foot and tyre. Warm under the tree canopy. Rabbit, fieldmouse, deer cross my path. Stop. Look. Listen. Pee. Man's greatest priviledge - to be able to urinate in nature. Take out the camera. Take in the scene. Up onto the downs. Alone. But far from lonely. Me and Nature, we go back years. Especially round here. Weather's changing shift. Last stretch. 46/ 11. Speed. Smile. Home. Marmite on my toast, titanium in my soul. Best ride I ever did.

looks like you live in a great place....that's picture postcard scenery if ever i saw it. :D

Funny how the simplest things can inspire us to write some words and you summed it up perfectly till you mentioned the marmite on toast...that's just wrong! :lol: Vegemite every time...:wink:

Moonkat, between Arundel and Bignor. At the top of Bury Hill, West Sussex.

Wanna come out on our ride next Sunday?
