My cycling scenery looks like this lately...
The past two mornings I have ridden past this general store. I love the old dog that sleeps in the doorway - he is always there, staying out of the rain.
Foggy waterfall on Conor's Pass.
I love this blue gate. A lot of Irish houses, walls, etc. are plain stone colors, but then they tend to accent everything with a red door, or a blue gate, etc.
An old house on the cliff on my ride.
I've yet to ride without getting rained on. Thankfully I brought warm clothes. I'm actually getting used to the rain. And Mike - I have even been remembering to oil my bike chain after each ride!!!
When I'm riding I keep wanting to pinch myself because I can't believe I actually get to ride my bike past all this amazing scenery. I can not imagine anywhere more beautiful to ride a bike!!
Streams and lakes galore.
There is definitely a reason it is so green here...
My ride typically ends with me coming back and getting warm.
My mom and I then visit a local pub where I get awesome food, warm drinks, and she tells me random facts about all the areas I just rode past. It's like traveling with your own personal historian really.
For example, today she told me that the area I rode through is home to half a million sheep. I have no idea why they are spray painted though...
