In-between emails the lovely day we have had today was calling so a rapid getaway was undertaken and I was on my Pan European motorbike heading towards the Peak District. Duffield... then Wirksworth into Cromford then the length of the Via Gelia to Newhaven. The sun had set and it was a great crimson sky so I stopped and watched.....
I headed on over to Ashbourne and as it was not quite dark I located by memory the chip shop. A feeding stop preceded a slow paced return home. Fifty miles but a good way to end the day.
Someone I knew yesterday took his own life, who why and how are not relevant, he was a motorcyclist and a family man. It is such a waste of life and he and his family who I don't know will be in my thoughts every time I go on my bike for a time to come.
We are off.
