Waitangi Day. Long weekend = 2nd Monday off in two weeks. I’ll leave the political and philosophical commentary for another day because it is something I really need to find a whole lot more about.

We decided to hit the Waikato River trails on our bikes today. 12.5km from Mangakino to Whakamaaru and the same back again  (surprising, eh?). Ups and downs both ways but also quite exposed and it was a hot, hot day!  Good to cool off in the lake at the end.  Here’s Nigel looking very wee next to the big boulder.

Day 45 February 14th 2016

Another scorcher in The Tron! A thought to friends,  relatives and all in Christchurch who suffered a large earthquake today.  Luckily all seem safe with apparently only minor damage according to news reports. This morning was spent helping out at the Bikewise event at Claudelands Park. The No Boring Bits team provided a skills course for budding mountain bikers which was tried out by a wide range of riders.
