Riding the Rimutaka Incline

I recently returned from a holiday in New Zealand where we stayed with friends for a few days. They are keen mountain bikers and wanted to take me, my husband and the friends we were travelling with, mountain biking over the Rimutaka Ranges behind Wellington and had borrowed bikes for all of us. Of the four of us, I was the only one who had ridden a bike recently (my husband bought me a bike for Christamas). The other three had not ridden for 20+ years and were not too keen to…

My first mountain bike ride!

The family and I went on our first moutain bike ride on the weekend - and loved it! We went on a guided ride along the Kep Track on Sunday - only about 10km all-up, which was probably enough for the first time. We started off slowly as it's a new sensation being on the gravel tracks and everyone was a bit cautious - but the return trip took half the time :) The bikes were provided free as part of the event which was organised by the Munda Biddi Foundation. This was a great idea, as we…

Being biased, we thought the program excellent: it was serious with touches of humor: it show-pieced the Pilgrim trail that the Camino follows and the scenery spoke for itself.

Since the show we have had 10… Continue
