five a.m. rides

"The trick, William Potter, is not minding that it's cold, wet and dark outside" - another great Lawrence

i remember pedalling slowly along that track through the early morning mist, the visibility was no more than 50 feet, silent apart from the occasional muffled snort of one of the heard of cows, that i caught the odd glimpse of as the wind shifted my field of vision, or the clang of their bells. 
so peaceful.
