43 km ride to waterfront and back

video
 A very pleasant ride on a sunny Autumn day last weekend, through from Te Atatu Peninsula to Kingsland and the Connon Bakery Cafe for the first stop.
 Then on through K Rd and Grafton Bridge to go into the Domain.
 And then down to the waterfront. I went along toward Kelly Tarlton's for a while, and saw the crowds on the walkway and decided to turn back and go under the harbour bridge and up through Jervois Road for a change.

 This was the splendour at the Viaduct.

Very successful blinging of comfort cruiser

 My sister has popped a few delicious decals on her previously black Pedego, which really pump it up! Looks like it captures the zeitgeist of the bike adventure era we are presently enjoying.

Bike to Work Day 12th Feb

 We set off from Te Atatu Peninsula at 7.30 this morning, just for the thrill of partaking in the Bike to Work day. It's not so pleasant along the side of the motorway these days, with all the work going on, but at least it promises to look good and be cycle friendly in years to come. At least they ensure we can still get through. . .
 This is my sister approaching from the offramp to Te Atatu.
 Getting close to high tide so that side of the cycleway was very nice.
 A great coffee at Pt Chev corner and a bike check.

Long trip into the city on hot summer day

We're enjoying some long days of mild summer weather, which is perfect for a long trip in to Auckland city and along the waterfront. On my return I caught up with a friend at the Domain, which is where I stopped for an ice cream and took this photo. Lovely shade trees and from this point on just a few main roads and then the long cyclepath back to Te Atatu Peninsula. All up a round trip of 40 kms.

Meandering leafy goosy paths

 The pictures tell it all. Forget the post Christmas shopping rush, this is the way to live. Western Springs park in Auckland.

New Year's Eve ride

video
A group of five of us cycled around the Te Atatu Peninsula last night on a lovely still evening. It was a great way to end the year, and a promise (I hope) of heaps more cycling in the year to come.
