Outing on a Summer's Day
A large crowd turned up to ride today - probably all glad to be out after the heat and dust of Friday. Welcome to the faces we haven't seen in a while.
We went more-or-less on the same route as last week (without sweating up the Ra'anana rubbish dump) - very good as there is little sand or mud. There are parts that are rather like a mini-Be'eri - tractors have made tracks in the mud that have hardened. So, for those of us that like the thrills, it was fun. Pity it was just a short track!
I took a tumble along the railway line immediately after I told a stranger that riding with his helmet untied is dangerous. So, blood spurted and I got my just desserts for interfering. Dina had an unintended, elegant sitting-down-on-the rocks in sympathy. John put his antiseptic cream to good use and I am feeling sorry for myself now...
But, look on the bright side. Cliff Richard is coming here in July and that made me think that we are actually lucky to have such a lovely day for a ride - like being on a Summer Holiday:
We're going where the sun shines brightlyWe stopped off at our usual watering hole where the waiter is getting ruder each time we come! This time he told us if we were more organized we would get our order more quickly. He may be right, but he shouldn't say it!! We had a lovely ride of 33 km in excellent weather conditions and as usual, in good company.
We're going where the sea is blue
We've all seen it on the movies
Now let's see if it's true
