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.
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.
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.
We started out a small group of women in Te Atatu, Auckland, New Zealand, recently determined to return to the art of 'slow cycling' and the joys of getting places in style on two wheels. The group now includes the odd man, who is, of course, a 'handlebro'. This is a record of our ongoing adventures.
