Round the block, the usual route, via Moonshine. Coffee at Relish.

A few more hills this week, compared to last weeks long sunny ride up to Waikawa. Which isn't to say it was easy. The group had to work pretty well agaimst a solid headwind on the way back. We still found some time to check out the new Houtere rd connection on the way back, which may be part of a nice little circuit in the future. We also explored some new back roads in Otaki, but that was because we missed a turn and I attempted to find our way back towards the beach by what turned out to be a cul-de-sac. All good fun. And we even explored a new hill, the Col De Rahui, the bridge over the expressway and railway. I'm not sure if they could have built it any steeper.
