A view worth stopping for...

It has been quite a while since I last posted. That's not because I haven't been riding. In fact I've taken every opportunity to get on the bike. I've just been really busy. Of course, being a church minister meant that the lead up to Easter was rather busy and so was the day job. Throw in to the mix a week away as chaplain to Air Cadets on their Spring Camp at an RAF base in Lincolnshire and having to prepare some academic work meant I haven't had a lot of time to sit down and create a post.

Yesterday was a lovely sunny day and after getting back from taking my wife to her horse riding session, in the car unfortunately, I had a quick cuppa and then it was out on the bike.

The journey to where my wife rides takes us through a village called Crayke which sits picturesquely on one of the few hills to be found in the Vale of York. The views from the top of the hill are spectacular. So I decided to ride back out there and get some photos. What I should have done is taken my camera as the photos which I took on my mobile don't do the view any justice at all and unfortunately a slight haze had developed. But I hope you get an idea of why it is a view worth stopping for...

I've also recently bought a Veho Muvi HD action video camera. I just need to get a suitable helmet or chest mount and I'll start posting some vids of my rides around this part of the world. 


  1. Beautiful views even taken with the mobile phone.

    I always love seeing the green valleys. So glad you found time to ride (and post) as it sounds as though you have been super busy.

  2. Thanks. There'll be plenty more before the summer's up.

  3. Lovely photos. They remind me a bit of the Sierra Nevada foothills here in California, especially at this time of year.

    Nice Triumph! A bit of advice: find a way to keep it after purchasing the Harley. It's been more than just a motorcycle for you, and I daresay that it embodies magical past times that the new Hog will not be privy to.... yet.

    Sentient critters, these motorcycles.

    The offer of a Steam Beer at the Cliff House in San Francisco stands.

    Ride Fast, Take Chances,

  4. Thanks Jeff, and good advice re keeping the Triumph. I hope I get to take you up on that beer sometime.
