The way of Health.
Last Week the Weather was very Mild for Saint Patrick's Weekend ,People were able to use Tee Shirts it was so Warm. Now this Week with the Change of the Clock's to Summertime it is back to the Winter with Sleet and Rain and the Weather gone very Cold.
I had an Electricity Bill to pay but did not want to leave the House it was so bad . So reluctantly I put on my Pull up Wet Weather Trousers and my Gore Tex Jacket and my Waterproof Avenir Bike Gloves and got out my Trek Bike intending to only go to the Post Office in the Supermarket as quick as I could then back Home. I paid the Bill and got outside and decided to go for a Spin around the Clontarf Coast inspite of the Rain. I ended up on Bull Island watching the Ships coming in. This is a favourite Walking and Cycling Area for Dubliners and the only really Decent Area for Cycling on the Coastal Cycleway from Clontarf Railway Bridge out to Sutton and then Howth.
Pics are The Wooden Bridge out to Bull Island Dollymount, My Bike on the Promonade, Stena Line Ferries leaving and arriving in Dublin Port,one Ferry bringing in Bikes for the Chain Halfords in a Container on the Stern.People walking on the Promonade. One Cyclist on the Cycleway at Sutton . Various Signs promoting Cycling and Walking with the Words in Gaelic Slí Na Sláinte The Way of Health. Pics of Saint Annes Parkland. I was actually glad I went for a spin on my Bike very Invigorating,I warmed up very quickly. It is truthfully the way of Health Cycling Slí Na Sláinte .
