David dropped us off at Kaiuma bay. Since there's no jetty, we had to clamber off the ladder at the front of boat. Believe me, not easy with my big pack on - some may wonder: you've got a bed, you get a towel, you've got food all sorted, what the hell was in your pack?!. *sigh* Clothes. And a lot of them.

Tough ride though, with lots of big boulders and tree trunks, branches in the way, tight corners with steep downhills. Proper mountain biking, this was not the Speyside way!!! 2 hours later with many photo stops and a wee ice cream stop when we arrived in Anakiwa, we made it back at the start in good time.
