This was another lovely ride along the Chester Valley Trail, about 24 miles/38.6 km. The world still looks a little bare, but things are changing rapidly.
I took only these two pictures, perhaps because it was just so fine to be out on the trail on a beautiful day, and such a good thing to be with cycling buddies again after the long winter!
We stopped at Wegman’s, as is our habit, and got a bite to eat. I meant to snap a picture of one of their new individual cheese trays, but forgot to. The serving was delicious and generous enough that I took a portion home for snacking later.
(That’s one of Saul’s steeds, posing with Basil in Exton.)
This paucity of photos may also be due to my unending frustration with my smartphone, which is one lousy camera. (Or maybe smartphones are strictly selfie-phones? Ugh.)
After this ride, I vowed to keep carrying my clunky little point-and-shoot. You know, the kind with a viewfinder that is usable in daylight.
Response to comments and email will be slow or non-existent until early next week, as Basil and I will be travelling — and riding in our third 5 Boro Tour.

Can a Brompton be a steed? Basil seems more like a pony so if Tom is still wanting a name for his Brompton, how about Falabella?
Falabella is brilliant, Ian! No word from Tom as of yet. I think further consideration is warranted: There’s just a little housekeeping that still needs to be done about the blog, but then I’m on it!
