    After missing the 11th annual event, due to Covid-19 lockdown, we booked early for this annual pilgrimage.

    safe ride down, but a little tired, so quiet refreshments at the Whanganui chapter club and a duck larb salad at the local Thai restaurant.

    up early for breakfast and registration for the dice run.:party:
    Start was the local Caltex station, with dice stops at the Rat pit in bulls, the Kimbolton Tavern, and the Hunterville Hotel.:sun:

    The stops involved a 4 die throw, refreshments, and socialising, before a quick brief on safety and the directions.

    Ride home was cool but fine, with great weather all weekend :sun::party:
    Temperature drop at the National Park was noticeably cooler.
