It was a warm, sunny day today and this afternoon I was thinking of going out on my bike. I pumped up the tyres and was ready to go, then I thought that actually I’d prefer to go for a walk. So I put my bike back in the kitchen and went out on foot. I enjoy cycling, but rarely do it these days – that are plenty of hills in this area and it’s just easier to go for a walk.
