Beaut Evening spin on the ‘Dale

Has Spring finally arrived?

Tonight was one of those all too rare, beaut evenings. The strong Wind of earlier in the day had relented, the Sky was full of pastel coloured shades, the roads were nice and dry. There was no way I was going to turn to the Hamster Wheel tonight, instead I turned to my Cannondale aka the Summer Bike and cycled away the stress of the day job.

I clipped in to the Pedals and was rolling along the Comber Greenway before I had even thought of a route plan. Before long I met one of the ladies from Phoenix Cycling Club Cycle commuting home from Ards so we both stopped for a quick chat, the dusk turning in to Night.

From the Greenway I cycled on through Comber town, up the Ballygowan road along the Hillsborough road keeping a good steady tempo and then descending down the Ballystockart road which was surprisingly clean for once, normally it is a mess due to the proximity of the Quarry. Leaving the Ballystockart road by the Hillhead road then back on to the street lit roads of Dundonald and home for a nice 18 mile spin door-to-door.
