Big Coast Bike Ride
N. and I volunteered as marshals for the RaboPlus Big Coast mountain bike ride organised by Hutt City Council. The ride began at Te Marua in Upper Hutt and headed over the Rimutaka Fell Incline rail trail to Western Lake Rd in the Wairarapa before heading south to the camp site. The course for the second day followed the south coast along Ocean Beach past Turakirae head, over the top of Baring Head and down to the Pencarrow Head track to Eastbourne. Two days of great weather, great riding and lots of people (around 250 riders I believe) enjoying themselves.
