Miranda Shorebird Centre Weekend 28 & 29 September, 2013
The civilised way to get to Papakura for a weekend away cycling.
Lined up and ready to go.
Coffee stop at Hunua. But not at the store.
Do we go to the Wairoa or the Mangatawhiri Dam?
We went to Mangatawhiri. Bryan is doing what Bryan does well, before the lovely descent in to the valley. This was puncture 2 of 3 for the day.
Of course, if you get to the bottom of the Mangatawhiri valley, you have to get out again!!!
They must be near the top - they are smiling. Not far now to the Mangatangi Dam.
Looks like Bryan is coming over to ease the crick in Sue's neck.
Bikes are not the only things he fixes.
Sue was looking at the face of the Mangatangi Dam, until Ron called out, "Smile".
The image on the right shows where Ron's camera's GPS reckons he was standing.
Time to head down to the base of the dam.
At the base, people were lifting their bikes over the gate - until someone leaned on it and it swung open. That gave everyone a well deserved chuckle.
Leaving Workman Road and anticipating the sprint down the hill to Kaiaua.
Dinner at the Kaiaua Pub. An excellent dinner. It was so good, only Athol had room for dessert.
Breakfast time on Sunday. Are these the early risers??
This trio is packed and ready to go.
Ready to head for home.
If they had motorhomes they would be welcome. But they didn't, so they carried on.
A sprint along the beachfront near Whakatiwai.
Well deserved treats at Kawakawa Bay.
