Some pictures from this mornings bike ride around my ‘Ouse Valley Route’ from Olney.  I took the time to look for interesting pictures to show you why I like this ride, you can see the signs of autumn arriving in the trees.  I am never more than 10 miles from home on this 30 mile ride.  I usually have my head down and riding hard along these roads without too much thought to the scenery.  I should appreciate it more and now I do having taken the time to look for the pictures.  What a day for my bike ride too.. spectacular colours!

You will find a route map of the ride in my earlier post about this ride..

I took these pictures with my Blackberry.  I only put thumbnails in here for speed of loading.  If you click the image you will get big the picture then press return to come back here for more
