A Bike Ride On Route N9

I’ve been bike riding on Route N9 in the summer heat.

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.
John Lubbock

The route lies between Copenhagen and Elsinore. In fact the route actually ends in Gedser. Read more about N9
Always look out for traffic no matter if you cross the coastal road or choose to stay on route N9

Remember a worthy packed lunch 👩‍🍳🥐🥑🥕🥙🥝
And leave nothing behind you than exquisite ruts from your bike 😎

The Wonderful World of June

A bike ride in the countryside in June is an encouraging happening. I felt as a child in Robert Louis Stevenson’s poem, The Swing:

How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside.
Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown–
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!

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.
