Friday Night Ride

About 22 bikes turned up for last night's Friday night ride and it was a goodie.

We headed around the Pohangina Valley and soon split into different paced groups with the fasties well out in front by the time I got to Apiti. It was a great ride through to Apiti with less than the usual amount of metal on the roads and zero traffic. Once in Apiti we stopped at the local pub and relaxed outside with cold drinks and snacks - $2 for a venison pattie & onions wrapped in bread - makes me peckish just thinking about it.

Once we'd had enough lazing around we mounted up again and headed for Kimbolton. I tucked in behind Meanie and once again got to listen to his Connie working it's way through the twisty bits. Only one issue on this leg - unmarked sand spread on the road on the last uphill section to Kimbolton. Not nice in the fading light...

From Kimbolton most of the bikes got their legs stretched a little on the run back into Cheltenham and then back across to Ashhurst for coffee and a wee strategy meeting...

Yet another great night out on the little Honda.
