There were 27 bikes at the Duck Pond.  I left early and a few minutes behind Guy to go as far as Kaitoke.   We watched as they went past in 3 groups and then headed home.

 Friday I visited WMC to see what was new.

Today was a Ulysses long ride, or it was meant to be, but not so long for me.

Left home: 0905hrs
Arrived Brown Owl  0935
Headed over hill  1014
Paihatua for fuel 1152
On road 1205  - a long stop
Stopped at Windfarm  1226   S40 18.061 E175 49.316
Lunch in Ashhurst 1247 to 1406 - to long
Headed home via the gorge and Mangamarie.
Arrived home 1648hrs

This could have been a better ride with less time stopped.  Lunch took so much time I didn't have time to fit in Vinegar hill and the long ride back,

388Kms  Ave Speed 49km/hr.

Waitangi Day Ride

Being a Wednesday I make an early afternoon start to meet up at the Duck Pond.  My ride was up SH1 to Mana and then across and up Haywards.   To fill in time I road around the Hutt hills and then up to Silverstream.  At 6.15pm I arrived at the Duck Pond to meet the group.  At 6.40pm we left and while they headed over the hill I turned off at Haywards and took to SH1 route to home.
