Dawn raid

Wide awake before daylight I decided to get up and get out on the bike to catch the Sunrise. Cycling early in the Morning is always enjoyable, traffic is very light and just like this Morning there is a chill in the air to ensure you are wide awake.

I opted for the Cyclocross Bike intending to hit the Singletrack trails at Barnett Desmense but shortly after setting off I realised I had forgot to put the Wheelie Bin out for collection so had to come up with a Plan B that would allow me to get a spin in and get home in time to get the bin out in time. So a shorter spin around Orangefield and Ormeau Parks would have to suffice.

It was now quite light and it looked like I might not get a good Sunrise but I continued out of Ormeau Park and on towards Central Station and then the magic started to happen.

A quick blast across the Short Strand and round to the Lagan Bridge at the SSE Arena and the Titanic Quarter to grab a few Photographs of the Morning glow before it fizzled out.

Along Sydenham road, out the Airport road and through Victoria Park then along the Connswater back to Orangefield Park and home to put the Bin out and make some Breakfast.
