Amidst all the depressing news, I thought that it might be worthwhile starting a thread to post good news to cheer us all up. No jokes (Bob's Corner is there for that) and no controversial remarks. So to start it off, I've been cycling more recently. Although it's an e-bike, I can reduce the assistance to work harder as necessary. Yesterday, I cycled along a short length of the former Whitby to Scarborough Railway Line, now called the Cinder Track. Refurbishment has begun, so the first part to Larpool Viaduct is now tarmac. The remainder will be drained and resurfaced in part, but not wholly tarmac to avoid it becoming a cyclist's racetrack. (I always give walkers priority, rather than shouting 'coming through' like some riders). The views of Whitby from the viaduct are stunning. I then went through town and along West Pier, then up the Khyber Pass at high speed (full power) finishing up at Claras hot drink kiosk. A flat latte and a sit down looking out to sea was so calming. Fresh salty air is really invigorating! Then back home feeling the endorphin rush that is such a pleasure following exercise. One of the delights of cycling, as well as the fresh air. are the smells and sounds. For the last couple of weeks, the birds have been singing their hearts out and it all feels so much more optimistic once the days get longer and the world starts to come out of hibernation.
