No rain in Tairua

Ten of us rode to Thames, no rain there, across to Tairua... no it wasn't raining there either, Whangamata? no. Waihi? no... and so I came back to Auckland - it started to rain, but only slightly, and anyway, what with a group of bikes carving up the motorway, I didn't really notice.

What a great day! Riding on dry roads certainly restores the confidence, and it was a great biking road too - apart from the stray pig dogs we encountered on the way to Whangamata. Of course not all the group WENT to Whangamata - yes we got split up, but no worries, I logged onto the website [IPAQ + Vodafone] and after interrupting DV on the golf course for Johnny's ph number, we managed to re-assembled again in Waihi for lunch.

Back through Ngatea, and my surprise visit to my parents back-fired... they weren't home! Oh well... managed to find the group again at Maramarua, after some "hurrying along" across the plains.

Arrived home with 385 more km's on the clock. Felt good, ready for more!
