This, for me, is an optimistic time of year. You can see winter coming to an end. It's still cold, but much brighter recently and the darkness of winter is receding. It's early yet and March is the month that winter turns to spring but there are signs. I've been doing some work on the FJ and thinking about runs for the coming year.
I got the bike out for a run today to the Ayrshire coast in sunny but cool weather.
|The FJ with snow capped Goat Fell on the Isle of Arran in the distance. I'm planning a trip round the island this year.|
|The FJ with its new brakes. I've been having trouble with the front brakes for a while so I decided to transplant the whole system - master cylinder, hoses, calipers and discs - from the old FJ. With a fresh set of pads they were working well.|
|Old mile stone|
|The famous Turnberry golf course. What sort of person might own a fancy place like this…|
|The harbour at Girvan|
|Becoming a more common sight - an electric vehicle charging station|
|The back roads were a nightmare. It's muck spreading season and the farmers don't mind spreading some of it here.|
|The whin is starting to bloom|
