An Early Morning Ride


Sometimes it’s worth setting the alarm for 4am…

There will be other grey, less inviting days, when the sun hides under its cloudy duvet and so can you. But, when it’s bright and full of promise, why not get up with the birds? These are the days that afternoon naps were intended for.

The whole beach to ourselves, quiet air, smooth tarmac, and a thermos of coffee are just a few of my favourite things. I find a bag of oatmeal and raisin cookies also helps ease an early morning start, with the promise of a bacon sandwich on return. When you get up at 4am anything’s allowed.

  1. This looks so blissful. I’m terrible at waking up in the morning, so I would probably have to stay up instead. Maybe one day though… I can dream.
