A rather moody looking Rangitoto was awaiting us at the summit of Mount Victoria
Di had decided that the best place to serve bubbly - or OJ - was in the
where we were sheltered from the wind.
Looking in to the pit.
While we were nicely sheltered we were not being distracted by the rain coming from the far side of the harbour.
Luckily, the rain did not get us and we had a good ride to Lesley and Mike's home
One bike got preferential treatment.
Getting ready for the next leg.
All ready to follow Di to her home in Torbay. (Roel had already left to get things ready for us.)
Waiting for the tail enders at the top of Glenvar Road.
Torbay Bike Park.
This time the bikes had been deserted for coffee and muffins.
Civilised partaking of morning tea.
Relaxing on the deck. "Do we really have to move on??"
Yes we do! And - YES - we have to go down that steep driveway!!
Deserted again at the Smales Farm Bike Park.
Here we had our main course at Columbus, where the
staff did a great job of making sure
we were quickly served.
The last bike park, on board Kea on our return to the Big Smoke.
This has nothing to do with the ride. It is the
new footbridge by the Parnell Baths.
Interestingly, it has a ramp beside the steps for you to wheel your bike.
At last we are getting designers with brains.
