Gentle Annie Ride - Labour Weekend

A great Labour weekend ride over Gentle Annie.  For those who have not ridden this route it is a must.  The weather was excellent and the accommodation and local eatery was great.  The morning started clear and crisp.


The riding was pleasant right through to our first stop at the Tikikino Hotel where we met up with around eight members of the Hawkes Bay Ulysses.  It was great to catch up with other Ulysses members, something we will aim to do more often.

 


On this trip we also had a little luxury travelling behind. Greg and Yvonne had tea and cake on board allowing for a pleasant afternoon tea in the valley before continuing on to Taihape.

We awoke to a cloudy Sunday.  The long way home was decided and all minus one headed up to Waiouru, then down through Fields Track, through the Parapara's and stopped for lunch in Wanganui (or Whanganui of you prefer).  From there a cruise home with a good breeze to contend with around Mount Bruce.  All in all a good weekend's ride.
