Hauraki Rail Trail 5 July, 2015

Morning tea at the Waikino Station Cafe.
Bill conned a lady who had just got out of her car to take the group photo.
Bill's still happy about his conning. Or, should that be
Or maybe he's just happy about his morning tea.
Our intrepid leader getting ready for the next leg to Te Aroha.
No milkshakes today, but the morning tea at Waikino is legendary.
Susan negotiates the narrow path above the Ohinemuri River.
Followed by Gaye.
We could not use this path when we did this ride in 2012 as it was under water.
Coming down the zig zag in cleated shoes was a bit of a challenge.
Glen and Bryan are the Tail Enders.
Ohinemuri River at Karangahake.
Paul checks for stragglers.
A reminder from Ed that - maybe - riding in the Karangahake Tunnel

Helen on the trail and loving that new mountain bike.
A few visual delights are on display as you arrive in Te Aroha.
On the way back to Paeroa Louise enjoyed the view of this stand of kahikatea.
She thought she might have been the tail ender, but this bloke was trundling along slowly at the rear.
