Things you like about this time of year
I like the drop in temp.Posted 4 years ago
I like going through the forest in the dark on the way home.
I like the sunsets.
I like the long shadows from the big hay bales in the fields.
I like the geese.
I like zooming through all the big piles of leaves.
I like that a lot of the fair weather commuters put their bikes away.

I love seeing the ducks and geese flying south in big “V” formations quacking excitedly.
“Are we there yet?”
I love riding bikes in the cold. Not quite there yet, still at that awkward spot where it’s cold standing around if you’re not wrapped up, but too hot when you ride off.
Also, love the changes in the landscape, summer is frankly dull as ditchwater when it comes to things to look at, our trees are all going mental just now and it’s stunning. (the smells too! Nothing like the smell of a scottish forest in the process of drowning in mud)
Autumn’s the best season I reckon. Winter a close second. Summer’s alright.Posted 4 years agofasthaggisMember
I like not being in a hurry so much,less battering along with some half assed training plan ,and more plain old a2b commuting.
My main light died in the forest tonight on the way back home,so I had to stop and rumage through my bag in the dark,once sorted out I just stood for a bit taking in all the sounds ,and the lights of the city twinkling through the trees from across the river.Posted 4 years ago
It’s nice to get those wee ‘tuned in to the seasons’ moments. 🙂jambalayaSubscriber

Coming back from a ride with the “right amount” of mud
The knowledge the winter is coming and the ski season will be here soon
Comfort food like stews, roasts and hearty soups
Evenings in without feeling guilty that I should be out doing somethingcloudnineSubscriber
Sideways rain, ankle deep mud, dark early, kids awake at 5am because of the clocks changing,Posted 4 years ago
The only thing that’s cool is riding in the dark and confusing the local wildlife with bright lights.
Last year I had a badger running along in front of me for about 30 seconds, an owl cruised along just above my head for about 100m down the road on the same ride.colournoiseSubscriber
Twilight rides. Love starting out in crisp Autumn sunshine and finishing with the lights blazing. The one thing we do have in this flat part of the earth is amazing sunsets.
Kicking up fallen leaves as you ride.
Squash and chilli soup.
The start of the Goulash season.
Going to the beach with the dogs and having it pretty much to yourself.Posted 4 years agoarrpeeMember
Comically huge, brightly coloured mushrooms.
Cold evening air with an edge of smoke.
Big cast iron pots quietly puttering away on the hob.
Felling your winter riding skill-set returning.
Trips to Drumlanrig; great in any season, but especially so at this time of year.Posted 4 years ago
