Exploring Hobsonville
Greenhithe & Albany

12 June, 2011







Wednesday riders see these areas quite often but, for those who can't get out on
a Wednesday, there is a lot of development to see in this part of Auckland.
Helen did a great job showing us around.



The shared path alongside the Greenhithe Bridge - a great downhill.

The poor old Fairmile has also gone a long way down hill.

A different style : a different colour - and how!!
This new footbridge over SH18 - the Upper Harbour Motorway - links
Clarks Lane and Hobsonville Village.

Tony thought this might be part of John Key's National Cycleway Scheme.
It's the view from the yellow bridge.

Bike racks? at the top of the Greenhithe Bridge path.
(N.B.  They are not ACTA bicycles, so don't try to recognise them.)

Peter bids us farewell so he can go home and patch up his wounds -
you can see the bloody elbow, but the bloody knee is tastefully out of frame.

Peter had earlier discovered the dangers of a pathway with a wet timber deck.

Albany Park, with its nicely elevated wooden deck.
(This one had a reasonable anti-skid covering.)
