There was a
gloriously fine day for our ride across the North Island
from Glorit to Warkworth, with a strong south west wind to help us on our way.
Our first photo opportunity came at this logging site.
We were fortunate that the logging trucks were not working today.
Then it came time to swoop down the hill past the logging ops.
A little further
along we heard a frog at the side of the road.
We stopped to look for it, but it was somewhat elusive, as you will see if you wait around.
Then it was time for a short wait for the last two riders to catch up.
believers would now be about ready to bid farewell to John G
as he rides off the edge.
would have a hard time convincing the riders on today's ride
that there was any merit in their beliefs.
elevation graph for this ride. John was standing on the
last peak before the big drop off, just past the 12 km mark.
Time for lunch at Warkworth.
You could sit on the walkway / wharf and feed the ducks......
.....or just sit or stand around and chat.....
.....or take heed of what we are always being told, and sit in the shade.
Whatever your choice, it was PDG.

frog) John McK.
