Brian, Mark and I saddled up and made our way across to Wanganui by the main road for a change (geeze, they've chopped those trees down near Bulls!) and made our way to the race course where the ride starts. Here the BBQ was already in action and we were quick to line up for a couple of pigs in blankets prior to the ride start.
At about 1pm we had a quick ride briefing before mounting up to follow Santa's DR800 out of Wanganui and back the way we'd come. At Turakina we turned inland and started taking a series of back roads that would eventually take the riders into Marton for a pitstop.
The ride then carries on back to Wanganui where they have a bit of an after match function but as we'd already been to Wanganui once today we pulled out before Marton and made our way back home via Feilding where it was nice to take off hot riding gear and grab a cold drink.
Not a bad weekend's riding!
