My sister (below) bought a flash electric bike and was bursting to use it, and the first really blue fine day this winter happened yesterday. We took full advantage and set off from Te Atatu.
Weather cold, but still, and a wonderful day for testing the endurance of the battery power.
We cycled from Te Atatu to Pt Chev, then up to our first stop at Garnet Station cafe and down to Grey Lynn. Stopped at Bread and Butter cafe for lunch, and then down to Ponsonby and down Franklin Road to end at Victoria Park. Along the waterfront to the Yacht Club, and back to Queen Street, and then up to the library to charge up our batteries (literally). Finally we returned home via Wellesley St and the North Western cycleway. Great day.
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.
