Aren't we lucky?
Emma, today I can’t ride 🙁 my back is bad, I have pushed it too far the last couple of weeks so I am chilling with some tunes, this forum and a bottle of sherry 😳
Not giving an excuse to employers to force wages down – but generally we are lucky. Health service, social security (whatever), no poisonous/bitey things. (comparative) freedom for women.Posted 5 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
I never seen anything that does it for me as much as the
northSouth Devon coast. So yep,very lucky.
Devon beaches, Hampshire chalk streams, Wiltshire’s whale-back chalkland, Northumberland hills, Yorkshire Dales, Pembrokeshire’s green fields, Scotlandshire’s mountains and lochs, London’s architecture and culture, Herefordshire deep welcoming valleys, Kent’s glowing fertile fields, The Gower, etc, etc, etc.
Damn this is a beautiful place!Posted 5 years agocinnamon_girlSubscriber
Oh Karin, sorry to hear that. 🙁 Fingers crossed it clears up quickly.
Just to give you a flavour of my day … started off with a little bit of Salisbury Plain then on to the one and only Stonehenge. Dodged the peace camp – loads of hippies sitting around fires besides their camper vans, loud music blaring, scruffy dogs, quite surreal!
A few minutes later I was enjoying downland littered with Tumuli, Barrows and Long Barrows, watching pigs snorting and then on to a village farm shop with cafe. I enjoyed a pot of tea with home-made bread pudding for … £1.70. 😯
Then passed a hill fort, followed by a landing strip and had the amazing view of what looked like a housing estate on Salisbury Plain! It was a mock Bosnian village for Army training. Buzzards circling overhead making the most of the thermals.
Oh yes, there was a bloke on a bike holding a TV aerial. 😯
Mustn’t forget the convoy of 4×4 drivers who most kindly waited until I had pedalled along the track before they continued their journey.
Next was a hamlet complete with touring park and cat hotel, beautiful old buildings especially the church.

We live in a beautiful country.
we do, but it’s seriously overcrowded in places.
I’ve been doing a bit of work in Co Leitrim lately, it’s a seriously beautiful place, and very very empty compared to West/South Yorkshire.
Compare the population of Ireland (the whole island, incl NornIron), is about 6.4 million, half a million of which live in the Dublin area. West Yorkshire, where I live, contains about 2 million people.
73 people per km2 in Ireland
1044 people per km2 in W Yorks
if it wasn’t so flaming wet I might consider living there. Going back to ma roots, as it were, as my great great grandfather came from Mayo.Posted 5 years ago
