Rural Idyll

Today I rode out through Great Rissington , then onto Bourton on the Water , before heading across country to Winchcombe , which lies in beautiful countryside flanked by hills , alongside which sits Sudeley Castle .
On the way back I took a route through the wonderfullly named Guiting Power , and on home via Stow on the Wold .

It was crisp , in fact , freezing , but I thoroughly enjoyed it , taking my time to drink in the breathtaking views along the way .
As usual , I took the camera , and here are the photos ........... [ too many to post individually ]

Beautiful pics Steve. Thanks for sharing. I just love the countryside and the old architecture there.

Ah, what a lovely Saturday morning. It's -15C here, all around is white and more snow is in the forecast, but I've got my UK map and photos of a Steve1962 ride - so all is well...

Thanks, Steve!

It was -6 C when I left home , but bloody hell ..-15 C

Heated seats , grips and heated gloves make riding possible in freezing temps , but I'd baulk at -15C , even if the roads were free of ice !!

I hope it warms up for you soon so we can see some more of Montana .
