To Ponsonby from Te Atatu and back

A very pleasant Saturday spent cycling into Ponsonby Road and enjoying some shopping and cafe stopping along its length. We even managed a loll in Western Park at the end and some reading. Perfect.

Te Atatu to Oratia and back.

Here we are tying the bikes up at the Packing Shed cafe at Just Plain Interesting in Oratia. A great place to cycle to, with live music (in this case, a Spanish guitarist), homely food, and great ambience.

Most of the way there is on cyclepaths, and through some interesting spots, like the Millbrook neighbourhood garden.

Holiday cycling

That's my bike up above, with friend Gordon cycling around the treacherous bottom end of Lake Rotoiti to get the paper - negotiating logging trucks and other traffic on the open road. Braver than me.
. . . however I WAS on the road behind my sister, in this one of many rides at Waihi Beach. On our way for a coffee at the other end. Very nice.
