@EVLED said "I hope this doesn't mean that there won't be any more silly little challenges..." Seems to me that we can help the NZ economy back onto its feet by buying lots of coffees/teas/beers whatever. My maximum coffee/tea/beer consumption usually coincides with riding my bike. Winner!! I can buy gas and pies as well. Plus I have really enjoyed the banter and contributions over the lockdown and it would be really nice to meet a few more of you in person. But I realise life is pretty busy. So rather than organise something complicated how about we just get together for a coffee? I'm thinking it will need to be somewhere between Palmy and Wellingtoon, where there is a campground plus all sorts of accommodation and, obviously, a coffee/tea/beer shop. If we made it a Saturday then the locals could squeeze it into a weekend and those farther afield but still afflicted with jobs can maybe make it a long one, or just drink a LOT of coffee and do it all in a day. Peeps can make the ride there and back as big or small as they like. (If people were keen we could meet for coffee in the morning, go for a gentle local pootle and then get together for a few carbonated beverages later, before departing the next day, but lets not get carried away) So... Anyone interested? If yes, where is the centre of gravity of the regulars on here? Timing - I'm thinking early to mid October so things have warmed up a bit but can be anytime really. I've got commitments mid September. Whaddayareckon?
