    Auckland chapter planned an overnight stay in Whakatane, meeting Taupo and BOP riders in Matamata. This gave some Auckland riders a day ride :cool:
    The weather was clear :sun: so a fresh start and some wet roads from overnight frosts :cold_sweat:.

    Justin enjoyed the mussel pot. The food was good at our lunch stop, the Horse and Jockey in Matamata.

    Lake Rotorua was very calm and the trip across to Whakatane had a noticeable temperature drop.

    Looks like a great group and rideout, @Dartplayer! And lovely weather after the wet roads dried. I love that sign about storms and dancing in the rain and also that car the wedding couple was in. So cool! And fun that they stopped for pics. :)
