A run in the sun

Here in Scotland we've had one of the worst summers I can remember. It seems like it has rained every weekend, and as a result I've hardly been out on my bike. My friend Kirstin asked if we could go for a run as she has a potential buyer coming to see her bike on Monday and wanted one last run on it. (It's a Chinese Yamaha YBR125 'clone'). The weather turned out to be nice for a change, so it was out for a run round the backroads of Renfrewshire and East Ayrshire, stopping for coffee at a very nice café. All in we did about 40 miles (60 km) on very quiet roads and I saw 22 degrees on my thermometer! Woo – that'll be our summer then!

This is the only useable photo from the trip. My camera started making strange noises and wouldn't zoom, and when I got home I found all the photos except this one were well out of focus and the lens mechanism wouldn't work - looks like it's dead! This was actually my first digital camera and I had gone back to it when my newer one failed. It's really big and clunky compared to much cheaper, newer cameras, so time for a replacement.


  1. Hooray you managed to get out for a dry ride.

    Funny the difference a few thousand miles can make. They said on our news that here in Oregon we haven't had any kind of measurable rain since May. Too damn dry.

    1. You can have some of ours if you want!
