Going Yellow for #SundayStills
What’s with all the yellow bikes?
This question is often asked as people drive around our area – Tumut, Batlow and Tumbarumba. Yellow painted bikes of all sizes can be seen on fences, gates, buildings, businesses and in paddocks.
The yellow bikes are simply a way for people to show their support for the concept of Rail Trails.
We have the honour of being the first Rail Trail on public land in NSW, with the Tumbarumba to Rosewood Rail Trail being a pilot program from the NSW State Government and managed by the local Snowy Valleys Council. Happily I can say it is finally in the process of being built, after many years of hard work, mainly from a hardy group of volunteers (including us). We obviously have a number of yellow bikes on our property fences showing our support for rail trails 🙂
Supporters in the nearby towns of Tumut and Batlow are also trying to get approval for a rail trail in their area and came up with the idea of painting old bikes and using them as a conversation starter and a show of support. Other towns have used a similar idea and different coloured bikes – but here it’s yellow!
Here are a few photos of yellow bikes in our area.
I like yellow flowers too….
Feeling mellow yellow….
I told you I liked yellow!!!
Sunday Stills – what’s it all about?
Terri from Second Wind Leisure Perspectives, is the host of Sunday Stills and very generously offers a photo prompt each week on a Sunday! Like minded people can write a post, share a photo or two and see how others have interpreted the theme each week. It’s a fun way to engage with others and share photos with a wider audience.
And it sometimes makes you think – which is good for our brains as we age 🙂
I know I always enjoy seeing what others come up with for these weekly prompts 🙂
How about you?
Do you have a favourite yellow story to tell or a photo?
I always love hearing your thoughts, so leave me a comment below!
Have a great week.
Linking up with Denyse #Lifethisweek with the theme of Gratitude – I’m grateful for the colour yellow!
