About RosieRosie

RosieRosie is a woman of a 'certain age' - whatever the hell that is supposed to mean. I feel about 26.

M is for Magdalen

I ride past here all the time, so had pretty much forgotten about it. So familiar is it. Pretty little village, a stones throw from my front door. I took my roadie out yesterday, as the wind had dropped it … Continue reading

J,K and L

More on the alphabet challenge. J villages, around here, are a little scarce. Jordan Green is on the map but has no village sign but there is a farm and a Garmin trail so that is good enough for me. … Continue reading

I is for Ickburgh

I finally got out to do this ride. I had been meaning to put a route in the gps but somehow things got in the way a bit. I couldn’t motivate myself mostly. Yesterday was fresh and bright. A bit … Continue reading
