Simple pleasures

“Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.”
– John F. Kennedy

It’s not always about going fast, going hard or going training – sometimes it’s just about going. This morning I jumped on the bike and simply soft pedalled around the Hobart waterfront. All casual in my t-shirt, jeans, trainers (and helmet because it’s the law). A bit of sight seeing, takeaway coffee on the wharf, quick Instagram snap and back to the office. Lovely.

    Great post, I often contemplate getting my commuter out of the shed and riding down to the shops/library. I’ll have to do it!

    I need to do more of this, good effort. I have started cycling to the shop every now and again on my old hybrid, just to mix it up

    I wish cycling helmets were law here, I’m firmly on the side of safety
