Gentle Annie Tour April 2017
The ride started from the Minda Hills Farm which is located 14 kilometres from Taihape.
On the first day we rode to the Rangitikei Valley Lodge which was 50 ks of mostly shingle roads.
Rangitikei river at the Valley Lodge.
The next day we rode up a shingle and steep road up to the Napier Taihape road. The ride was around 60ks and the first part was the most difficult.
The Gentle Annie was even more of a challenge after having ridden up the shingle road from the Rangitikei river in the morning.
