the last cycle ride before the end of the world

The Mayan Long Count finishes today and before the world comes to an end I decide to go for a winter bike ride. I haven’t been out for ages but the ride through the forest, past Connaught Waters and to the Butler’s Retreat is both exhilarating and exhausting. The ground is very wet and the forest is flooded in places. But what joy to be out on the bike again!

Anyway, the world didn’t end so hopefully there’ll be plenty more bike rides!
