I wakened earlier than normal this Morning and thought about going out on the Bike for a spin, then my brain woke up and registered that it was still dark so I rolled over and tried to get some more sleep. An hour later still awake and now daylight outside I grabbed some kit, filled the Water Bottles and prepared to get out for an early spin on the Bicycle on quiet roads.
After losing time to a bit of faffing around replacing batteries I finally got out the Door, a pleasant Morning, not too cold but I opted to pull the arm warmers on anyway. Out through Dundonald and along the main road to Comber, barely another person to be seen, just me, the Bicycle and the hum of my tyres on tarmac. Pure clean class as the saying goes.
Through Comber on to the Ballgowan road then a right on to Hillsborough road and a left in to the Ballycreely road and over on to the Tullyhubbert road.
It was still early enough that even the Sheep were still having a rest.
Along the Monlough road carefully selecting a path between the bumps and the Potholes the Sun was now breaking through the Clouds.
Skirting around Saintfield on the Station road and then the Killyleagh road to Darragh Cross and along the Darragh road where someones well maintained Garden caught my eye.
Next up was the Drumreagh road through to Drumreagh and onwards to Lisbane and a nice brisk descent of Quarry road to the Ballydrain road back to Comber and home via the Greenway for a nice 32 miles to start the new week.
