    After warming my hands in the sink, we enrolled and ordered coffee to warm up.
    More bikes continued to come in until right up to the ride brief (total 130 entries) with a huge range of ages and brands.

    The ride was marked at corners to help get to the dice roll locations in Mercer and Whatawhata, before returning to Morrinsville.

    Prizegiving was in a private room at the Top Pub, where refreshments were enjoyed before heading home in the dark. :eyes:

    Great day, with over $2000 raised, but the body was ready for rest and food when I got home and my bike was filthy :tired_face:

    Good cause, great roads - I drove down that road a few years ago, avoiding the main road, to return a rented bike to a dealer in Hamilton. (I'm fairly sure it was that road - I just blindly followed my son-in-law!)

    Also (kind of) down that way..... I had a go on the Hampton Downs go-karts earlier this year with my grand-children - what a great track.... and those two kids were fast!! :confused:
