|Action shot: here I come.|
I didn't leave the cottage especially early this morning but no one else was up when I left and that makes it all the more serene.
It feels too long since I have saddled up for a leisure ride but soon as I am on the gravel I wonder why I've left it so long.
These roads are normally very quiet so it was a first for me to pass a road cyclist (looked like he was training) on a paved section and someone out for a run. The city "lifestyle" is clearly making its way into this farming community.
|Trans Canada Trail runs through here. Might have to properly check that out someday.|
|Ah, yes. This is what I was looking for!|
|Small Methodist church outside Balderson. I think it's defunct though.|
|Bridge near Fallbrook. I thought it crossed the Fall River but I'll need to double-check.|
I love the city and all its variety but I also love the tranquility of the country. It's interesting to me that the further I physically bicycle into the middle of nowhere the further my desire is for the city - but when I am back at home I love it too. Which would I choose if I had to? Not sure.
Rounded out my ride with a stop at Balderson Cheese for a coffee. Wonderful way to spend time here at the cottage.
|This pic is actually outside Coutts Coffee in Perth. It was a better shot than the Balderson stop.|
