47 Years

The last time my twin sister and I went on a bike ride together was 47 years ago!
 47!
So today, looking every inch like a couple of Enid Blyton characters we took to the promenade for a sunny bit of cycling
What fun!

    First that you went on a bike ride in such a nice day, second, that you’re a Twin?
    You keeps surprising us, John.

  5. As you are twins you should have surely been on a tandem!

    2. PS Not being sexist; it's much easier on a tandem if the heavy one is on the front...looks as though that might be John...

  6. What a great spot to ride - I'd bicycle on that if I had it, too! That's a wonderful way to start your biking adventures, with your twin sister.

  9. A perfect place to ride. No hills. No dirt trails. No mobs of people. And the perfect company. You're both very lucky!

  11. You two look great, but I cannot believe how empty that beach is. Ours is wall to wall with sun lovers.

    1. Unfortunately we have miles of golden sand but few holiday makers want the Welsh coastal experience

  14. Oh that looks like so much fun! I've been wanting to get out on my bike but I just found out I have several tears in my knee and will have to have surgery. You'll just have to have some bike rides for me!

  15. The perfect spot to do this by the looks of it! Nice when we have special time with our sibs.

  16. Lovely shot John and what an empty beach - you could have gone skinny dipping.

  17. O you intrepid cyclists! Did you solve a mystery or two whilst on your cycling adventure? I hope you had your torches handy!

    ReplyDelete
  18. did you have fun? or were you panting like a dog and moaning that your legs hurt?

  23. Hello Janet - nice to meet you! What a wonderful pastime with the one constant in one's life, your closest and dearest relative. Looks like you had a beautiful day for it. Hope you can do it again soon.

    Looks like fun. I haven’t been on a bike in years. Glad you are out enjoying time with your twin.

  27. Visions of Terry Scott and June Whitfield on a tandem in 'Carry on Camping', the latter doing the 'driving'. Cut to Babs Windsor doing forward thrusts until her bra snaps off and lands on Kenneth Williams' face - "Oooooh Matron! Take them away!"

    1. NOT June Whitfield but Betty Marsden (of course!).

  28. My last bike ride was probably slightly before that. I'd like to cycle again, but cycling on busy roads rather than cycle paths is dangerous, and Jenny forbids it!

  29. I am fascinated by twins! My friend is a twin, she calls her brother her womb mate. And I have twin grandbabies, boy and girl, 10 months old and they are so funny to watch! Your biking looks like a lot of fun, what a great way to spend time together!

  30. Ha! That DOES look like an Enid Blyton book cover!

  31. That's a lovely flat route to cycle, John, with some great sea air thrown into the mix. Love your sister's bike!
