Friday March 26th 2021 – After a long day at work, I stood in the dark yard at work astride the bike ready to ride home.
I looked at the bike computer, which gives me sunset and sunrise times and noted sunset had been at a nicely round 6:30pm.
Just one more day and British Summer Time begins – the clocks go forward an hour and light floods back into my evenings. As you all know, I hate the dark in winter, and I’ve never known a winter as dark, persistently challenging and as devoid of light spiritually as the one now behind me.
Unlike many people, a few known to me, who did not make it through this far, I am still here, still riding and made it through. I remember those we lost with sadness every day.
Never have the light, and the summer days been so welcome.
Let’s ride into the warmth and sun together.
