Happiness is….a bike ride from Dundee to St Andrews.

We have had a beautiful week here in Dundee and so on Friday I decided to cycle to St Andrews.  Along with a flask of coffee, Annie Dillard’s ‘Pilgrim at Tinker Creek’ and my bible it made for a beautiful journey to visit our minister in St Andrews, Paul Clarke.  It reminded me of McCheyne’s visits out to see Andrew Bonar in Perthshire, when he rode on his horse ‘Tully’!

I thought I would share a wee flavour of the journey…and if you are ever in this beautiful part of the world perhaps you will get to experience it for yourself!

  1. I loved Bonar’s diary and the biography of McCheyne. You were certainly in the paths of the godly, but you didn’t say the distance of the round trip. I guess you must be pretty fit.
