Plimmerton – A very short ride

On Wednesday, 12 November, we went for a ride near Plimmerton. The plan was to ride along Karehana Bay, then turn back and ride via Paremata to the Camborne Walkway, and back.

However, the wind along the waterfront at Plimmerton and Karehana Bay was so strong, it made the ride quite a struggle. The tide was high, and at times the seaspray slapped over the wall onto the footpath.

Having turned around and biked back to Plimmerton, John wasn’t feeling 100% - he’s been plagued by recurring nose bleeds in the last week – so we decided to call it a day and go home, even though we'd biked only five kilometres.

This is my 99th blog post. So it is appropriate that my next post will be a special one, with a surprise. Watch this space!
