Late summer ride up in the hills above The Kapiti Coast, a different ride on a Wednesday evening, not a lot of track to follow now that the farm has closed, all that nicely cropped grass chewed down by the sheep has turned into wheel eating matting which makes for challenging hill climbs. Not a lot of green after the long dry summer.
But the views from up in the hills are pretty good although the southerly wind was blowing strong.
And once you have done the last climb past the stock yards the downhill is a real blast with plenty of opportunities for unexpected dismounts… but not on this trip.
And even the locals stayed up to watch us pass but declined the offer to join us for a pint at Finns in Paekakariki…
Steve. And a bunch of good keen HVMBC folk who don’t always stay on the ‘straight-n-narrow’.
