Greetings, my dear friends and family, how are you? I hope you are in perfect health, have a smile on your face, and your heart is full of hope and light. I try to be hopeful, too, and keep trying.

As I told you in my previous articles, my husband and I bought two bicycles with the onset of spring, to use for our transportation and sport. Last Friday morning we had a group bike program with my cousins ​​and their partners, to start early in the morning until the weather is still cold, and go to a destination with a beautiful view. We have breakfast there, and head back to our homes.

We were supposed to be in front of my cousin's house at 7:30 in the morning, which is not far from our house, and we can reach it in 5 minutes by bike. My husband and brother-in-law and I left the house at 7:20 a.m., and five minutes later we were in front of my cousin's house. He and his wife left the house after a few minutes, and after a bit of talking, we started pedaling towards my another cousin's house, because the streets were very deserted, very soon, we reached their house after 15 minutes. My cousin and her husband were waiting for us next to their house, we held the bikes, talked a bit, set the destination, and started riding our bikes in a group of seven people.

We had to ride a distance of about 15 km. On the way, we passed the big square of the city, and these beautiful tulips caught our attention.

Beautiful tulips around the city square...

We stood and took beautiful photos with them. They were very beautiful and fresh, I felt really good to see them. We drank water, rested and started pedaling again. We decided to cross the city center to reach our destination. Because Friday is our holiday, the city was very secluded, and it felt great, cycling on the secluded streets that are always full of traffic and crowds.

We reached our destination after about an hour. But we were looking for a secluded place to relax and have breakfast. There is a beautiful and old park in our city that is very green and in the middle of it there is a beautiful rocky mountain, where water flows through the rocks. We had a hard time crossing the narrow, and rocky roads of the park with our bicycles, because the path was full of rocks and bumps, in some places it was uphill, and in some places the road was broken, we had to take our bicycles in our hands and cross them. But it was a good feeling, because we were doing all this while talking, laughing and joking with each other, and we didn't notice the difficulty of the path.

We finally reached the beautiful mountain of the park. About 70 steps, we had to pick up our bikes and lift them. We did this with difficulty, and finally reached the foot of the mountain with a unique view.

Our bikes on the rocky mountain...

The beauty of the Mountain View was worth all the hard work. There was no one there, and we were alone. We put the bikes in the right place, spread the mat in the shade by the water, and sat on it.

My cousin's husband opened his backpack, and inside it, was a small picnic gas, a kettle, an egg pack, a jar of oil, two large frying pans, fresh bread, breakfast cheese, tomatoes and cucumbers, and delicious sweets. We all wondered how it all fit in his backpack. He made scrambled eggs for us, and we ate a very nice breakfast with cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, fresh bread, and tea on the beautiful slopes of the mountain, overlooking the spring trees and the pleasant sound of birdsong.

Spring flowers on the mountain...

We were all very hungry, and eating this breakfast was really enjoyable. After breakfast, as we were talking, it became cloudy, and it rained, but it was not too heavy, so we didn't take it too seriously and continued to rest under the raindrops and pleasant weather. After staying in that beautiful place for about two hours, we decided to return. We took some beautiful photos as a souvenir of this beautiful view, and started pedaling back to our homes.

Mountain View...

The way back was a bit more difficult because it was mostly uphill, we said goodbye to each of my cousins ​​at the end of they road, and as the last ones we got home at 14:30. Our bodies were very tired and bruised, but it was really worth it, because it was a pleasant and memorable day for us.

We cycled about 32 miles that day, and the software showed that we burned about 3,100 calories. As soon as we got home, we threw ourselves on the bed and fell asleep from exhaustion.

That day will remain in our minds as a unique memory. Just because I don't take my cell phone with me when I ride my bike, I could not take many photos along the way to share with you. All these photos were taken by my husband with his mobile phone. I hope you enjoyed reading our cycling experience. Stay safe, I love you... 💗

The tulips are indeed beautiful. By the way, I also got curious how all those stuff that you have mentioned fit on that bag. I wonder how big his bag was and that even the pan's fit inside 😂 , I was like wow. Anyway I'm glad you had a great time with your husband and your husband's relative's that was a great weekend escapade by the way 😊.

Exactly dear Garreth, it was a question for all of us how he put them all in his backpack. He is a professional cyclist, and all his equipment was such that it took up the least space. And interestingly, he had them all in his backpack... 😂 Thank you my friend, yes exactly, it was a very good and memorable weekend ‌‌... ☺️

Strange as it may sound, I don't know how to ride a bicycle up till now.. sometimes, I feel so ashamed of myself . Neither do I know how to ride a bike or drive a car 🤦

Dear Bilqees, there is no hard work, especially if you practice cycling for a few days, you will fully learn... 😉 It feels great when we even use a bicycle for transportation. It is a kind of sport, it does not pollute the air, and it is full of positive energy and a good feeling, wandering the streets... 🚴

I haven't smiled in a long time. ... I didn't even notice how spring came😞 Every day I hear the clatter of heavy iron that rattles death... Your photos are beautiful, but nothing makes me happy right now, I started to stutter and my hands started to tremble. I think this hell will never end....

Oh dear Belozoriana, I'm so upset and sorry for what you said. When I hear the news, I always remember you, my friend. The world today is overwhelmed with wonder how this war can go so far. We are all worried about you. I wish there was no more war. It seems that the world is coming to an end with the occurrence of these events. Please stay safe. I'm worried about you my friend... 🤍🕊️

Please ask your cousin's husband how did he fit all those lmao. That guy must have some secret skills in packing.

That's exactly the point, my friend... 😃 We were really surprised how all this stuff fit in his backpack. He is a professional cyclist, so all his equipment was very light and compact...

This is pretty interesting. Before the pandemic hits us we oftenly make a bike ride. It is so enjoyable especially when you're in friend. Sometimes we reach the mountainous area and sometimes in Riverside.
