Waipu Ride yesterday....

Well, we had an awesome day yesterday. Although the weather decided to give us four seasons in one day it was a great ride. Basically a figure 8 - from Auckland across SH16 to Wellsford, then over the hills to the Waipu turnoff where we stopped for a fantastic lunch, then a variety of back roads led by one of the local riders and we popped out on to SH1 and then home with a detour to the Puhoi pub for a late afternoon refresher.

We had 11 cruisers on the journey and great company too. One of the guys was riding my future bike - a new Triumph Thunderbird - I just need to buy a lotto ticket! :)

All in all another great day with like minded riders and cruisers!

Thanks guys.

That's a great ride - particularly from Matakana to Waipu. Vary it by going to Warkworth, then Leigh, over the Pakiri Hill - dust and gravel for about 2kms - then through the Whangapiro Valley to Wellsford. Nice ride on a fine day. Then go on to Waipu through Mangawhai and home down SH1/SH16.

I'm back!
