Exploring Papakura Channel
without a Kayak
Keith took us on this route for the first time in August last year.
The 14 riders really enjoyed it so Keith kindly ran it again for us today - with 16 riders.
Briefing time before we leave.
I think Keith was pointing to the colossal black cloud that was sneaking
around the corner of the building.
Last time we did this ride it was a gloriously fine day.
Not so this time!!!
Very soon after setting off, we got dumped on.
But the Ground Effect jackets worked a treat.
Coffee time (remember, this is ACTA : the Auckland Coffee Touring Assn) at bb's.
Some riders had become a little paranoid about the rain and could not even part with
their jackets inside.
Before we knew it, we were at our lunch stop in Weymouth.
We had to take shelter from a squall, just before setting off for the afternoon.
A tricky little descent.
The path had steps and was a bit slippery : Annie thought straight across the grass was the way to go.
Another interesting descent - rideable (carefully) this time.
With a rainbow behing us, all must be well with the world.
ACTA is obviously a Pot of Gold.
