Off to the West Coast for the weekend with Ian & Alison to do the West Coast Wilderness Trail, a nice mostly flat track from Greymouth to Ross.
We drove over after work on the Friday and stayed in a nice little bach in Kumara junction. Then the next morning friends (Dave & Philippa) who live on the West Coast, came over and collected us and brought us to the start of the track in Greymouth. After about, oh, 100m we stopped for a nice coffee ;)
Then a nice ride down the coast back to Kumara junction.
The next day was a bit longer at 70km odd, unfortunately my phone decided to crash half way through so I can’t prove it ;) Anyway, a really nice ride through the bush and alongside old mining & sluicing works.
All in all a very pleasant cycle.
