Rec ride report

Sports Ride Sunday 26th October 2014.

Eight set out at sea level from Moetapu Bay on a KW tour. Quick warm up to get back to the Portage Rd and the down the seal to Ohingaroa. From there it was a steady climb on forestry roads to 400m asl and the saddle over-looking Anikiwa. Young Mitchell was having an off day so he and Dad retired part way up the hill. Next time Mitchell!


An out and back trip along the western side of the ridge provided views over to Kenepuru Sound and beyond. Back at the saddle it was up again, as you do and because it was there, to gain different views again.

A great downhill eventually brought us back to the tar seal and even more downhill to Double Bay. A short nasty climb told you how fit or otherwise you really are before arriving back and our cottage at Moetapu Bay after a total of around 24k. After beers/tea/coffee and biscuits it was off home for the visitors and a couple of zeds for me.

 The next Sports ride is scheduled for Sunday November 23rd
