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
