shopping by bike

Yesterdays bowls were only just soft enough to "pie crust" the edges first thing this morning. Last night they were too soft to turn over!!

After building a new manure bin on the allotment by extending the present pallet compost bin construction, I went to town by bike! I've mislaid my "shell-cutter" wire and calipers so new ones were bought from Celtic Kilns. (only plain wire though)
Back along the towpath to Risca for shopping, it was a beautiful day to be out on the bike. Even with both panniers as full as they would go!! I must admit I did walk up " Factory Trip", the steep little kick up into the village.

Now refreshed it is time to get back in the workshop for a while...soup bowls to make next.

You're lucky enough to be able to ride to town by bike. Our road is much too narrow without proper shoulders for bikes, that and the local traffic speeds along too close for my comfort!

Too hilly here for that. I'd have a heart attack with my 3 gears!

I need to move to Holland...

What a nice change of pace -- and scenery. Also a way to experience a nice sunny day.

Ditto the above comments! The road outside my house is scarey enough when I drive, let alone bike! Love that name 'Factory Trip'!
