Today's ride took
us from Coyle Park at Point Chevalier out to the
little train up by the Swanson Filters.
Bryan and John
arrived a little early and found a coffee shop open about 8:30.
They stopped for a coffee and were soon joined by Denis, Cathy and JB.

reflecting on the past.

They call the train the Dam Tram.
Meanwhile, it's lunchtime for us.
The fastest bananas in the West!!!!

gravel on Drower Road, Denis decided we should have a short break -
so he arranged to get a puncture.
Looks like he was probably getting encouraging words while he fixed it.
We did not have time
to stop at this little bridge yesterday,
so we put it in today's shots.
The time in Auckland, New Zealand is
If you are looking at
this in the Boss' time, you probably should get back to work -
but only if you have finished looking at ACTA's web pages.
