Sit by the fire and dream about the hot summer days of cycling
The Cyclopaths , well some of them, like to walk in the winter months before the cycling season begins once again.
The other day I decided to paint a simple watercolour for my granddaughter’s birthday card….I am NO artist but I can do some simple stuff. My grandkids love my work and that is all that matters! I haven’t touched my paints for quite a while and I pulled out one of my watercolour pads and a beautiful watercolour painting fell out! Not mine but one painted by a dear friend. It was painted by Dave Durnford during our tour in Newfoundland a few years ago. Dave knew how much I love The Rock and he gave me that lovely work of art. I must have put it in the watercolour pad to keep it safe and then promptly forgot about it. Those who know me know that Newfoundland is my most favourite place in the whole world….really! On a dreary winter morning I found this little gem…..Thanks Dave…..
In the winter some of the cycling club members get together to walk along the waterfront trail in Belleville. It is a great time for a little exercise as well as a chance to get together with friends.
Back in the summer of 2010 I had organized a cycling tour in Val David , Quebec. David and I thought it would be a great time to try out a tandem bike so we rented one! It was fun that day and when we got home we bought one for ourselves….needless to say, I ended up hating the tandem (that’s another story). Take a look at our ride on the trail…click on the link to see the video.MVI_8146
November is here and with it some gloomy weather and now with the end of Daylight Saving….the darkness comes earlier. What better way to brighten up than to look back at some photos from the years past with the Cyclopaths…..I will post more memories over the month of November.
