Having road cycling as a hobby has many benefits: improved fitness, improved physique, being less of a burden on an already overstretched NHS, arguing with knobheads in cars, enjoying nature, enjoying the fresh air of the countryside, fixing flat tyres to list just some of them.
However, one of the best things about cycling is being able to get to prime locations to watch a sunset.
Not all of my sunset photos were taken on bike rides, but many were and there’s something cathartic about cycling somewhere to get ‘that’ photo. Going over endless hills, into headwinds and adverse weather conditions.
Then there’s getting home. Back over those hills, the shitty close passes and the flat tyres…it all seems to melt away with seeing the captured photo.
Sunsets, you’re fucking amazing!
