Today we cycled to the Karangahake Gorge along the Hauraki Rail Trail, our mission was to get to the winery that was about 15 kilometres from the cycle hire shop in Waihi. The scenery was beautiful and very similar to Devon, especially with the Friesian cows in the fields.

I got cycled into but luckily neither of us mowed anyone ...

When we spoke to the host this morning we heard that he had stepped in again at the age of 73 after various managers had let the place run down. He is now bringing it up to scratch again. Tonight though, in Waihi, we have a lovely studio flat with a huge bathroom and ...

We had passed the mountain the evening before on the way to Taupo. The summit reaches 2790m and in the moonlight it was glistening with snow where ...
... he got the hint and we were off. The first part if the trail involves tunnels and bridges and passes by the Victoria Battery so is quite interesting and varied. In no time at all we had knocked off 7 of the 14kms and I was feeling like a pro. Through the tunnel we went and onto the cycle way path that meandered down beside the gorge. It is pretty as a picture and good for the soul. Reading later about the cycle trail told me that it is suitable for everyone - wheelchairs and ...
