Did the (Mythical???) Moki Trail today. 46 epic k of native bush, rugged farm land, gravel and a splash of road. :thumbsup:

Went for a sifty ride@ makara today hoping my sick olde lungs were up to it. I am loving office spread virii.
Went up Koru (pedal pedal) then Sally Alley (always entertaining) then hopped off to climb up past Ridgeline extention (blah hills).
Then had a quick play on the 75M of upper JFK, then skidded down the road and rode up and down the 300m of lower JFK (which is about 80% done). Has promise!

Did Smokin (great fun, and that last switchie is really much nicer :lol: ) and, for a change, AMP then Rimu.
Then I meandered about and climbed the road (OH NOES) back home.

I feel a bit better now :)

More slippery wet riding down in Dunedin.

Had an epic skid around Jubilee park then headed up Leith valley/Nicholls creek to Swampy. Did a loop of swampy with the plan to head out to the raceman tracks. Given how incredibly wet its was decided to give this a miss (from memory these are only dry a few days a year) so headed home just making it back before it started pissing down.

I bet you do.

Yesterday I had a nosey round the tracks in Taupo in the form of the mid NI cup race, before heading out for a couple of hours afterwards for a poke around. Rode like a mong on the first lap, haemorrhaging positions left right and centre, before holding steady on the second lap, and getting faster on each of the subsequent laps. Got smashed in by Dirk, Cabin & co, but had a blast up there! :thumbsup:

Had fun after the race, getting round a few more tracks, before heading home. Mint, mint riding in Taupo, will become a regular destination for me :thumbsup:

Added a couple of hours to the ride home by going via the trails at Mirimar.

Jail Break rocks, even on the hardtail.

Will do again.

I had a quiet little ride up Makara Peak then down a really awesome track called North Face.

The people who built that track should be showered with gold, and given lives of luxury and contentment for their efforts. ;)

Nice loop around Rata Ridge, with a quick spin back up the trails and down spoonhill. I need a bit more speed (or pop) to properly clear the wee kicker into the final chute of spoonhill, but overall pleased with the 1st effort.

Makara Peak.

Lovely day out. Tracks are dusty / drifty fun.

Did two laps.

Yonks since I've been able to ride that far. Did it all in the middle ring too.

Stoked. Fitness is coming back.

Legs might not want to go so far tomorrow though.

Caught the train out to Featherston, and then rode back to Wellington. Over Rimutaka incline, tunnels provided a great break from the heat. Took a detour up Akatarawa Rd and the Karapoti Gorge, leaving via Valley View Rd. Back into Wellington via Hutt River trail and along the motorway. Just shy of 100km all up, in a bit under 5hrs 45. Not the most exciting route, but alright for something a bit different.

Shit, she was warm in those there hills today though - climbing through recently logged areas in the Akatarawas was bloody awful.
