Rural Cycle Route

All photos were taken on our 33 km country bike ride on Fathers’ Day, June 20, 2021.

When we first started doing these rural rides due to Covid, I took plenty of photos showing roads, fields, trees, etc. Now, in order to make better progress, I limit my shots to what we see when we stop for a break. Here are the highlights of this ride.

Intermittent stops,

snapshots of country living.

Rural cycle route.

Not even under way yet and this robin was singing sweetly from the tree top just beyond our door. She would not turn to show her good side, but the song was just as sweet, nonetheless.
Rural landscape. The Alberta beef were out. They are actually steers, beef is just their career path, though they do not know it yet.
They must have been wondering what manner of beasts we were with our shiny helmet heads and two wheels.
Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, moooo is me.
Brands (Bovine gang markings).
New Canola (rapeseed) crop bursting forth.
Rural still life.
Decrepit farm buildings in the distance.
My beloved riding companion pedals along this rural route. The downhill helped, but it seemed the wind was in our face, which ever direction we turned..

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Can’t you picture her rolling he bovine enemies? Thanks Joni. We love our E-bikes and are sad to see the cycling season drawing to a close. We will be getting them in for a tune up over the winter, so we are ready to roll next year. They were a God send during the pandemic. Thanks for reading. Allan
