Peacocks & Gulmohars on a Cycling Trail
Last weekend I got back to the saddle after a long hiatus. Little did I know I would be blessed with such unique mesmerising views, that too on an off-beaten track which had big puddles; an aftermath of the previous nights rain.
The weather was picture perfect, as were the sights. Nudged by a seasoned and experienced fellow cyclist, we took the plunge of going into the trail road. I was tad apprehensive as I had not ridden in months, and was hoping to wrap up the ride by 15-20 kilometres. But we chose to go ahead.
I’m glad I did. I was able to conquer my apprehensions, even though an old knee niggle re-appeared when we were on our way back.
But, much before that we had stopped for a chatty stop-over at Fauji Dhaba (shack) for chai, omelette and bread pakoras (fritters).
Coming back to the knee niggle; miracle of miracles, I swished off the pain in a jiffy. Reiki healing came to my rescue. I asked my two co-cyclists to go ahead and ride on, while I pedalled leisurely and gave reiki (healing) to my knee.
The Glorious Gulmohars and The Pretty Peacocks:
Can you spot the peacocks? How many do you see? I’ll share the count once, you share your thoughts.
Wasn’t this ride into the off-beaten track worth every moment? I’m so glad we stopped to appreciate the stunning sights, and not rush out to just scale the distance. We managed a 27/30 kms, approximately. The app stopped working. But I couldn’t care less, rather be grateful for the enchanting views.
I’m also glad I did not give in to my fears, which would have played a role in all probably, to aggravate the knee pain further. That could have been the case, going by my past track records. 😉
Abundant gratitude to the universe for these precious blessings, amidst the break neck scramble of life. Abundant gratitude to Mother Nature. Abundant gratitude to myself, for being me, and working slowly but surely towards transformative change.
