When Sunlight Matters

We are almost in panic. The weather forecast promise sun and there are cracks in the layer of clouds. But will the sky grew dark within an hour?
No reason to hesitate any further. I take my bike and soon, I’m cycling the big hills and muddy paths in the woods.

There are many places where fallen trees block the path and I have to carry my bike over the tree trunks. This is fitness on a high level.
It wasn’t my intention. I am in a good shape, but not in a peak condition.

It’s a common incident every spring isn’t it? We get too eager and afterwards we look like the figures on my last picture. Bewildered and very tired ❤ 🙂

Vi er næsten i panik. Vejrudsigten lover sol, og der er revner i skylaget. Men hvor længe holder vejret?
Ingen grund til at tøve længere. Jeg tager min cykel, og snart cykler jeg på de store bakker, og de mudrede stier i skoven.

Mange steder er stien blokeret af væltede træer, og jeg er nødt til at bære min cykel over de mange træstammer. Dette er fitness på et højt niveau.

Det var ikke min hensigt. Jeg er i en god form, men ikke i en topform.
Det er det samme hvert forår, er det ikke? Vi bliver alt for ivrige, og bagefter ligner vi figurerne på mit sidste billede. Forvildede og meget trætte ❤ 🙂

God tur derude! I kan med fordel starte ved Holte station.

  1. I love cycling too. I can imagine how you felt after lifting your bike over fallen trees though! That would give your muscles a good work out. Your last picture made me laugh. 🙂 Thanks for sharing the lovely pictures of your early spring ride. They’re beautiful. 🙂

    • Jane, the figures stand in a garden near my favourite lake. A couple of years ago they looked new and stood perfectly straight. I don’t expect they have been out weightlifting, but they look very tired 🙂 🙂
      All the best,

  2. That sounds more like an army assault course than a bike ride. You are obviously in very good shape.
    I like the final picture. They were very surprised to see you as well as bewildered.
    Cheers, Alen

    • I opted out picture documentation from subsequent consequential damages as well as days of sickbed. The final picture was taken when I had almost recovered my strength 🙂
      All the best,

  3. I love cycling, did a lot when I was in the Netherlands. Sometimes it is lots nicer to cycle than driving a car especially in the summer days. Lovely images! Hope the sun will shine for the rest of the week..

    • Thanks a lot, Indah 🙂 I love cycling too. There are so many beautiful spots and it provides good exercise and there is no problem with parking.
      My bike is Dutch ❤ Maybe it was transported past you while you drove on your bike on a summer day in Holland 🙂
      It's a Roadrunner from Koga. That's the best bike I've ever had. I hope you will have the opportunity to cycle where you are now.
      All the best,

  4. After a couple more of these eager bike rides I expect you’ll be in peak condition, indeed! 😉 And in the meanwhile, you’ve captured some truly lovely images as a souvenir of your first springtime bike ride of 2016. Hang in there … the days are growing longer and it won’t be long now until the sun is keeping us company late into the evening!

    • Thank you so much for your sweet comment, Heather. You’re right, I will save the images as the start of a unique cycling season 🙂
      I still miss the sun, but soon the days grow longer and the sunlight will embrace us all as you so rightly put it ❤
      The best greetings,

  5. Great photos Hanna. It looks like you’re hanging on to the autumn! Yes! Sunlight does matter. It is what sparked life into our wonderful planet. Every morning I look to the east to start the day and am happy, particularly when the sun smiles brightly.

    • Thank you Ash. Yes! There are places in nature where it seems like the month of November has frozen in time 🙂
      All the best,

  6. Lovely photos Hanna – I have just bought a bike, I had a knee operation 6 months ago and the physio suggested I get one – I haven’t been on a bike in 40 years, so I am taking it easy 🙂 Looks a lovely place for a bike ride…

    • Thanks for that James. In Denmark, there are very nice bike paths for all types of knees. You just have to choose the right one at the right time as it is with every road in life 🙂
      I hope you will enjoy cycling again. I have some difficulties imagining a road without steep hills at your place but maybe I’m wrong.
      All the best,

      • Thanks Hanna…the town I live in is in a valley…every road out of it is a steep hill ☺

      • I’m not surprised, James 🙂 Hundred pull ups before you start on your bike 😉
        No, just joking but I hope that your new bike has a great gearing!!!
        Wish you much fun with your exercise.
