My story

[p]Frosted grass crunching beneath your feet while vivid yellow clumps of daffodils and the unmistakable scent of bluebells drifting through the trees. Clouds of pungent garlic flowers bordering a gently trickling stream. Foxgloves rising above the banks along country lanes and cultivated flower borders in mansion house gardens providing an opportunity to look up-close, see the intricate beauty and the butterflies and insects buzzing around them. The smell of the sea and brush of salty breezes on your face along a coastal path with the rhythmic sound of breaking waves below. Golden cornfields dotted with red poppies and glorious wildflower meadows under the melodic tune of skylarks singing so high up that even good eyes can’t see them. The fantastic shape of a stand-alone mighty oak set against a summer sky in the middle of parkland and sunlight shimmering across a lake hosting water birds of all kinds. Autumns oranges and yellows creating a completely different look to the same landscapes then winter snow completely changing it again. [/p][p]I could go on and on, but in short, as a visually impaired person I may not clearly see things but I fully enjoy all the wonderful and weird of our great outdoors has to offer feeding my senses and my soul all year round. And the glimpses of the unexpected are the magic moments that make a place for ever special in my memory. [/p][p]I am taking part in this challenge (pedalling 10 kilometres 10 times on my exercise bike during October) to help Countryside Mobility continue to provide people with limited mobility the opportunity to enjoy our wonderful outdoor spaces through their all-terrain mobility scooter hire scheme.
