A camera and a borrowed bike sounds to be the ideal setup...
Hi Clint, thanks for the info I went yesterday it was very nice.
I'm keen to ride this weekend - at this stage Saturday because that looks the better weather. Was thinking Ocean Beach, Onoke Spit, Lake Ferry around to Whangimoana, & then on to Ngawi / Cape Palliser.
Lets have a show of hands as to who is keen?
If you've a better idea I'm happy to listen
My tyres are old. If I get you to agree then you are at least partially responsible. Then I can blame you, & make you feel obligated to push
Try hiding the nasty bits in funny colored text will you....
Unfortunately I can't join you as I'll be beta bashing tomorrow.
I followed a couple of road bikes last Saturday around Lake Ferry (and then up to the pub at Pongaroa) - watch out for slippery cow shit all over the place (if its still there)
Have a great ride
If anyone is interested, meet 10.30am today at Caltex Rimtutaka.
well I probably should have joined you - then I wouldn't have had to spend the afternoon pushing a Beta with no spark.....
Yes, but think of the amazing cardio vascular workout you got.
Beta living everyone
If you had to push a bike for an afternoon, the Beta would be top of the list...
Steve and I went for a ride out to Ocean Beach today
Then on to Onoke Spit
The bottom right of the board promised the remains of a shipwreck
Towards the end of the Spit looking across at Lake Ferry.
He would have got a good workout on the Ocean Beach ride too. Following the 4WD track out the end of the Onoke Spit was hard work (at least on Gus).
That phone of yours takes pretty good photos Wayne.
hows the back ?
Anti-inflammatories before & after the ride seem to the order of the day...
Here is my write up
Weather is forecast to be fine on that side of the hill.
Who is keen & where do you want to go?
Default is a loop out thru' Homewood Rd to Riversdale Beach, then up to Castlepoint.
But I can easily be persuaded to do something else if you have a hankering for a particular ride.
Lets say 9.00am at Caltex Rimutaka
Sorry - I won't be joining you tomorrow - I have a date with a 10,000 acre mud bog tomorrow (I'm not actually sure which non main tracks will be ride-able but there is only one way to find out)
Have a great day
Good luck tomorrow Steve.
I have to do some much needed maintenence tomorrow and a bit of prep for next week so will hang around here for the day.
so what happened? did you go for a ride?
Ride report over here
Nice pics and ride report Steve
I'm riding up to Palmerston North via Wairarapa backroads tomorrow (Sunday 21st Jul). The excuse is to pick up a Trade Me purchase.
If you are keen to ride, gather at Caltex Rimutakas at 8.30am. The Wairarapa side is supposed to be sunny - the Manawatu side not so much. Ride back will depend on who joins me.
Postscript: The Trade Me vendor won't be available Sunday anyway, so that frees up constraints on the day a little.
