No 1 son came home to visit today and brought with him his latest toy. So Billy Steve challenged him for a race.......
Well not really a race... the hand bike is really hard going on hills. On a normal bike you use your leg muscles and can even stand up to add your weight to the effort.
On the hand bike you have only your arm muscles and this is the first time no 1 son has given it a go outside. He has a stand to put the wheel on in the house so that he can use it to exercise his arms, which are looking quite beefy I can tell you.
The goal is a tryout in a couple of weeks time for a race that will happen in the summer. No 1 son is hopeful of getting picked for the team... if he makes the grade I will let you know.
What are we all about?
The focus of this blog is simple - and that's the goal too. A more simple way of life. A life in tune with the rhythms of nature and of human nature. Where everything has its time and place and purpose, including us.
We have left the rat race behind and taken on new challenges. We aim to tread as lightly as we can upon the planet, to reconnect with nature, to eat good food, drink excellent wine, enjoy the best of company.... even if that is sometimes just our own! Please feel free to eavesdrop from time to time on our lives and see how we are doing and if you are ever in Extremadura... drop us an email and we'll give you directions.
