Paerata 4 Aug

This might be a new record for a Tuesday ride: 24 bikes and one pillion.

Lou Waller led us down the motorway to the Drury exit then back up the motorway to the Papakura exit where we turned left. We went out through Kingseat and onto Clarks Beach where we stopped for a regroup and to shoot the breeze and tell some lies. Then it was onto Karioitahi for another break, and some riders took the opportunity go for a ride on the beach.

Lou then took us over some back roads of Waiuku, Otaua and Aka Aka then up through Puni to Pukekohe and onto Paerata to the Petal and Pots Cafe for lunch where we met up with an injured rider who couldn't join us today.

An excellent ride on a perfect day. Thanks to Lou Waller RIC and Tec Charlie Tee.
