I am never happier than cycling along country roads, especially in spring or summer. You can enjoy the sounds, smells and sights over a much greater area than is possible on foot and really give yourself a good workout on steep hills. Careering down the other side is an exhilarating experience.
The time I decided to perch a video camera on the handlebars and cycle along, giving a commentary, did not end too well, as I found myself on a hill, could not hold the camera and control the bike and duly ended up in a mangled heap, at the side of the road! The price for saving the camera was cuts and bruises, since I could not fall properly. The recording of this embarrassing event survives for posterity!
