Me and the lovely Mr Shoestring once again proved that the best things in life are free yesterday, with a bracing but exhilarating cycle in the winter sunshine. My thighs hurt today so it did me good in more than one way!
We are fortunate that, due to a lot of new development on the old army land around where we live in Colchester, the council has put in a good network of cycle paths, and we were able to cycle miles without having to go on the road.
So I am making good use of my new bike which actually still has the tinsel on it from when I was given it on Christmas Day. This does make me look rather like an overgrown ten year old so it is probably time to take it off 🙂
