I tend to Tweet quite a lot of Photos from my cycle commute along the Montgomery Canal, with just a few snippets of information posted which I thought I should post a Photographic blog of my commute with images starting 3kms outside of Newtown in Powys.
My Journey to work starts By catching the train from Welshpool to Newtown, now with myself working in a Medical Practice it is not ideal to cycle as for instance getting wet before work or the dreaded flat Tyre, so ideally the morning Logistics could be a problem so with catching the train its ideal, i arrive clean dry and most importantly on time to start my clinics.
My return trip is by Cycle so let me share with you this amazing 23K afternoon commute between Newtown and Welshpool...
Firstly i have to point out traveling on the main road is not ideal as I find it unsafe with traffic cutting cyclists up, With the Montgomery Canal Tow path in excellent condition to cycle along it provides me with traffic free and safe environment for the 23km cycle ride back to Welshpool, I have to say I absolutely love Cycling back after work the positive points are exercise, fresh air and combining Photography along the way with a abundant of wild life along the way with flora and fauna , the odd flash of blue of a kingfisher, family of swans I have watched there young grow throughout the season.
So lets being my journey along the Montgomery Canal.......
This a family of swans i took special interest of there progress. There are nine cygnets and have been no looses todate, I have been doing a head count once week, nine cygnets is a good number as swans tend to have a clutch of three to eight egg, the cygnets are more independent from the parents now which is getting a little harder to keep tabs on the numbers as they now tend to spread them selves along the canal.
