It’s days like today that…..
I’ve come to love and appreciate the soft green hills, the pale rocks and red dirt, the woods and combes of this bit of England (Somerset). But the West Coast Highlands and Islands stole a bit of my heart. Like a beautiful woman with whom one had a fleeting, intense affair and who haunts ones dreams on quiet nights such as this [sighs]
But it IS superb to be here at this time of year.Posted 8 years agoRudeBoyMember
Yeah big dirty cities with hardly any green spaces are lovely when its really hot aren’t they.
Woon’t know. I’m fortunate to live in a city with loads of green spaces; more than any other capital city on Earth. In fact, I’m just off up to Epping Forest, which is not far from me, and very green!

I love the industrial fells of Calderdale and Kirklees
I love the beauty of the rest of Yorkshire
The many facets of English countryside are stunning as are numerous urban environments
I love Scotland and Wales for their wildness
Never been to Ireland but piccies show another beautiful country
I cannot say I’m particularly proud to be a Yorkshireman, Englishman or Brit, not because of the places but rather because of the people
We are an affluent nation compared to most yet seem to continually winge about our lot
If more of our combined wealth was used to make our nation better to live in rather than buy the latest plastic/electronic/mechanical marvel made in China, then I am sure I could be more proud of my nation as well

On days like these, I feel blessed to be in good health and a mountain biker. Having missed last summer laid up in hospital.Posted 8 years ago
Yesterday afternoon I went for a superb ride. Even went round for 2nd helpings of my favourite downhill/singletrack. Involves a bloody steep climb, but was well worth the effort. Then back to the pub for a pint and perv at groups of women out in their bikini tops in the pub garden.
