Sunday Morning Exercise

This morning was the first Peasedown Peddlers ride of the year and it was good to get out with the boys again. As always, Sunday morning rides are a tremendous boost to my mental health and the crisp, slightly chilly and foggy morning added to the enjoyment.
Good company and a steady pace makes such a difference and the social element of riding in a group has really benefitted me, allowing me to build conversation with people about a shared interest.

The Peddlers are a great group. We aren’t an official cycling group, but we try to go out on most Sunday mornings for a 20-30 mile ride together. Not a fast pace by group standards at 12-14mph but perfect to make it fun, enjoyable and, of course, great for physical and mental health. Today, though, you could really tell it was winter – mucky lanes and a VERY mucky bike tell a story of 26 sticky miles, but fun miles. Thanks to Steve for the route and to him and Paul for the company.
