Karangahake and Martha Mine

23 March, 2008


The "official" ride today was supposed to be from Kumeu, with no fixed
destination.  But some adventurous types decided to go to
Karangahake instead.

Here they are in the carpark before setting off through the tunnel.

Of course, there is a nice coffee shop in the station.
But it looks like it was not only the café that was open.

Margaret is probably smiling knowing that, if a tyre did need changing,
Bryan was on the ride.

Eagle eyed viewers will have noticed that Pelham is fixing another flat
