A Sunny Cycling Commute
I think the river Tay has got to be one of the highlights of my commute to work and it is certainly one of my favourite places in Dundee. Tonight it was spectacular. It had been a cold, crisp, sunny day and consequently as the sun was disappearing from the sky, it left a trail of light that reflected beautifully in the water of the silvery Tay. I usually like to mix up my daily route a little – so when the headwind is horrendous or it is pouring with rain, I’ll opt for a shorter route through town. Sometimes I just take a few different turns or trails just for fun. However, on nights like this, I almost always end up by the river and you will see why in the following few photos.
Dundee is lucky to have this riverside route; a shared walking and cycling route that detours some of the city streets and takes people from the town centre towards the west. It looks out over the impressive waters of the Tay, which always gives me (and the city) a sense of perspective.
One of the highlights of this route, which is just a few miles long, is the rail bridge that stretches into the water. If there is anyone that reads this… what are the highlights of your commute?
