  1. 2014 TT2000 – The Best Laid Plans! (Part 2)

    I ended up arising around 0500 in order to give myself plenty of time to repack my panniers and set up for the day. It had really pissed down during the night but was back to an intermittent drizzly, dismal day with the temp at about 16º (when it would finally become day), ….and a few more hours kip would have been very nice thank you.

    We finally got on the road at 0607 and within a few minutes, my trusty GPS was telling me that I had arrived at Boddytown…..but alas there was no Doc ...

  2. 2014 TT2000 – The Best Laid Plans! (Part 1)

    With the New Zealand endurance riding scene down to just two real rides, (The Chatto Creek 1,000 miler and the TT2000 – 2000Km in 48 hours) since I haven't sampled the CC, it's pretty easy for me to say I've just completed the best endurance ride on the NZ riding calendar!!

    That's not to say that it was the best ride I've been on and definitely not the best TT I've done, but as always with this type of riding, it was different, it was challenging, I rode a shitload of new roads for ...

  3. Snakes Are Cool Man!

    It's been awhile since I blogged about my mate Jake and his sisters Eleni-Mei and Sienna. I guess that's because they live in Canada now, so they don't tend to 'swing past' the office anymore and it's a bit of haul and much organising required if we were to do the the baby-sitting thing...so bottom line, we haven't seen them for two years!

    However, two things transpired to bring the Chueys back to EnZed, their Uncle Joe got married this weekend and the Wellington 7's bought the Canada ...

  4. 2013 In Retrospect

    Another quicky done and dusted!

    In terms of Forest Gump’s Mum’s Life’s-Like-a-Box-of-Chocolates Theory, I think this year’s box had more of those fudgy, truffly, cherry-ripey yukky ones rather than the Turkish-delighty, strawberry-creamy, chewy-chewy-caramelly Mmmmmm ones.

    For starters, it can’t have been a very good year because I’ve only managed to do 15-16,000Km ….pfft, how bad is that?!

    Both of Ann’s parents died this year so that’s been pretty tough, ...
  5. Slowing Up For Christmas

    Today was a huge relief for me because over the last month or two, things have been pretty hectic both at work and on the motorcycling scene for me and today, after the running of the Wellington Ulysses Christmas Gymkhana, I'm freed up again.

    It was bloody great fun but the lead in has been a bit rushed because first I had to get the C1KC, then two MDA rides out of the way so this week, I had to do the prep work of sorting the plan for the course layout, then practice the setup for ...

  6. 2013 MDA Ride

    08/12/13

    Another year almost over and we've just completed another Muscular Dystrophy Ride, whereby we take Christmas gifts to children in the central and lower North Island.

    This year we had a bit of a change and the week before the main MDA Ride, we took presents to MD children in Wellington on the way to our Cancer Kids Ride (which involves turning up to the Cancer Kids Christmas Party and taking them for rides)...so the last two weekends have been a lot of fun and ...

  7. 2013 c1kc

    Another bloody marvelous day.....Bloody Marvelous!!

    Prep for this year's C1KC started straight after last year's one, when, although I had a couple of potential routes, I was doodling on MapSource (as you do) to see just how far we could get from Wellington, ...without doing an out and return, ...and still be a reasonably interesting route to ride. I was hoping to touch Tauranga but had to settle for Rotorua-Putaruru, so I ran the options past my old Wgtn Uly Ride Committee buddies, ...

  8. I Yam – ACC - Waipuk'

    Since my last blog I've done a few rides but I've been as slack as Gremlin at not getting anything written up!!....again.

    Last Sunday I went for a ride with some of the local IAM group....so I had to behave myself!? Unfortunately I needed a decent ride, but it was a bit short and I couldn't be bothered going for a bit of fang after the lunch stop, so I just slotted in with the group and came back over the hill. It was pretty windy, which wasn't much of a problem going north over the ...
