Things have been very quiet on the biking front and very busy on the work side, so since this weeks Uly Ride was short and sweet and the weather was forecast to be very good, I figured ‘bugger it’ and went for a ride.
I put a bit of air in the tyres on Saturday, got my kit ready, charged up the Sena, camera & phone and left home about 0925, complete with skivvy over T-shirt and liner in jacket to deal with the 10°. I was only down one bar, so didn’t need fuel and went straight to Brown Owl where there were already about 10 bikes waiting and by 1000 the 15 bikes (one pillioning) departed.
We paused briefly at the top of the Hill for a photo, then regrouped at Featherston before heading around the Western Lake and straight down to Lake Ferry for another brief photstop.
Woody and I were last away for the 8Km scoot back to Pirinoa and although I’ve stopped at the store there once or twice over the years, I’ve never stopped at the café, which looks more like a tin shed and isn’t a lot bigger. We squeezed in though and the food was quite nice …and that was it.
Woody asked if I was in need of more Km, but we were going out and I had a few things to do, so just went back via Martinborough, checked a few roads I haven’t been on for some time, got a bit warm with the liners in and winter gloves on when the temp hit 18°, enjoyed a bit of a fang over the hill and was home before 1445.
That was nice!
This blog is pretty much just about motorcycling ...but every now and then I might rant or dribble on about other things.
