The fine weather continues...



Been an amazing week weather wise...
This morning dawned with a harr drifting in on the onshore wind and it felt cool as i cycled to work taking the more fun off road route...


The old original Surly Pugsley now has the Jones Loop bars fitted after a longer 90mm stem arrived in the post yesterday,  there is enough room on the 18" medium frame for me on the bike , and i`m happy to report the Orange/Yellow Pugsley was sold today to Feargus who i`m sure will enjoy the bike for many years...
I also sold the Surly Krampus at the weekend and it has been posted...
So the old Pugsley has now become the Alfine hub KramPug  29+ day to day go to bike for commuting and long days out...

I wonder how long this frame set is going to last,  it`s 9 years old soon and has over 12,000 miles clocked up now...



Looks like the bales will be out the fields around Whitekirk soon so thought i better get out for a wee cycle again this evening before they get grubbed up...


And what an evening to be out!, with sunset now at  20.40pm i prefer it being dark by 10pm, i sleep better when it`s not so late light and early morning, if i wake and its light its hard to get back to sleep...  years of early starts as a Greenkeeper!.
Also means i can get in a midweek cycle with hopefully a sunset without being up half the night!,

I only rode to Whitekirk this evening and through 4 fields but seen so many different angles of the usual far away views of the county...




Better view here than at 6.45am this morning on the commute!...


As the sun set i rode home as a big full moon rose...


Sadly i have never had a camera good enough to get a big pic of the Moon, but tonight you can see the craters etc...



So instead here is a Pugsley up in the sky!...


I shot some film, not much,  but long enough to use a little Boards of Canada track from the `Music Has the Right to Children`  UK LP Track 17; `One Very Important Thought`....

Midweek harvest cycle



The Barometer never lies, and what an amazing weeks weather were having!...

Damp misty dawns that soon burn away and the harvest landscape glows golden brown in the sun...













Home from work and out again onthe Surly KramPug riding harvested fields. All the 29+ stuff is back on the old frame again, just waiting on a longer stem to arrive so can fit the Jones Loop bars on the Medium frame.


Lovely evening...








I jumped on the combine with Drew until nearly sunset...














Near full moon rising...



Some film,
Song is `Almost Prayed` by The Weather Prophets...
