Thanks to a mongrel cold I've lost three weekends worth of riding and having a new bike in the shed has made this even worse. This past weekend, by hook or by crook, I had to fix that!
Earlier in the week I'd considered shooting up to Taupo to tackle a two day trail ride but still fighting the cold and unsure of the weather it was a bit of a gamble. In the end Chevvy came up with a plan to go and play in the Akatarawas. Mark had just had a significant birthday so I told him he had to come and take the WR so I could see if old men can still ride...
On Saturday Mark popped around and we prepped the bikes before loading them on the ute for a quick getaway in the morning.
