RRRR 2012 (Part two of two)

Up earlyish Sunday to do some maintenance on Gus. Beautiful day.

Left Clint & Rosie at the camp – they decided to leg it home.

The return leg consisted of me, Bart, Wade, Chris, Waihou Thumper, Nic, & GSer.

Breakfast at Meadowdale New World, just so that Bart could dump his gear on his mum.

Over the Gentle Annie, all sealed now, but riding into wind & light drizzle. It got quite cool up there to. My riding there wasn’t the best then – just didn’t have my head I the right space.

Turned off at Matawhero Station. Brilliant, flowing, open & damp gravel road (no dust). (1st Photo by Bart)

Lunch at Taihape at the Soul Food Café. Try their Steak Burger. Yummmy...

We lost Nic & Chris there, as they went North.

Then Toe Toe Rd at the bottom of the Mangaweka Deviation, Kawhatau Valley Rd, Auputa Rd, & through to Apiti, where we sat in the pub to wait for a rain cell to move across. We cleared out before 90 odd police & search & rescue people descended on us. By mutual consent, we decided to forgo Takapari Rd. It would have been miserable up there. Makoura Rd, Pohangina Rd West & on to Ashurst where the group fragmented again.

GSer & I went around the back of Palmerston North, Then I headed for Wellington. Home 5.00 ish.

Cool weekend Bart. Thanks for organizing it.

950kms over the weekend

Took the day off today to recover.
