Cycling Carrots and six

Posted by on in News

Six is the number of love and as we know love makes the world go around.. though my physics teacher did say it was something to do with gravity. So when your having six think of love but also gravity as both help.... *smile* Our carrot has now grown and his head is above ground he has found he is not alone and there is a whole family of carrots growing. A lovely sight and knowing he is not alone he will grow stronger with all of the love.

Interesting how people love carrots in different ways. Some say carrots are good for your eye sight but I do not see that.

carrotscarrotsSo why the love of the carrot? Its been a symbol of 10-10 for over 20 years and started with my cycling group which was called 10-10. Why 10-10? I hear you ask... so many questions but basically we met ever Sunday at 10am at the Wharf in Devizes but a few cyclists were late so we left at 10.10am... hence 10-10 was born. Of course my family of cyclists wanted more and someone asked my what do they get when cycling with me....  another question!!  I had to think about that as I thought the fact they were cycling with me was enough..... as it was free I was limited of what I could give... wrong they wanted something.. so I came up with the idea that if someone cycled with me 3 times they got a carrot and so it started we became a group of carrot nibblers and we would go out have a ride and stop for our nibble. It did develop as another cycling group formed and became the banana's but that's a different blog! Not going banana's yet *smile*

So the carrot was the incentive and is often dangled to encourage others... Its been a golden week for cycling with our Olympic cyclists I wonder if they train using the carrot?...  now I'm asking questions...so carrots have six appeal the number of love.

There are differen coloured carrots and there is a golden one called Lobbericher. This carrots grow to around 10 inches, display a bright golden yellow color with a greenish core, have an average taste with mild sweetness. Mouth watering?... another question agh....Cetainly will bring some of these into our family.. there are of course other colours but not going into the Purple Dragon... oh arr.

Its time to go feel the love of my carrot.. will be back with soon with 7.. Do I here you saying Oh Oh 7? have a great  day *smile*
