  1. Morriesons Bar & Cafe Hawera Wedges

    Clive & I headed out of town for a wee mid week tootle with no plans on where to go and we finally ended up in Koupokanui. Go on google it! But before we got there we needed to stop and get some liquid refreshments and some fuel for the body. We had a great "long way" ride to our final destination via Alfredon, KImbolton, Mangaweka, Hunterville, Fordell so we needed something to eat.

    Hallelujah Hawera!!!
    Finally some wedges that are the way that I feel wedges should be! For ...

  2. The Tin Hut Tauherenikau Wedges

    Another great evening for a ride. Caught up with the wednesday night crew again and headed over the hill again, this just a little further up the road.
    Second time over the hill this week for me and since I had a really good run on Monday night I was looking forward to a repeat tonight. To make that happened I hung back and let the crowd go for it. By the time I got to the hill I had a clear road in front of me
    Road was in good nick again and the road work crew are making ...

  3. The Royal Featherston Wedges

    I have been house bound on Wednesdays for the last few weeks for various reasons, so the Wednesday wedges rides have been on hold.
    Last night I got "told" to go for a ride by my darling wife and come back a more resonable person. This usually works too ! I can become a bit of a handfull if I dont get a ride for a while. Thanks Nic!
    So I caught up with the Welly wednesday night ride and over the hill to Featherston it was.
    The ride over was good and the condition on the hill ...
  4. Finns Paekakariki 9th Dec 2009

    Week 1 and I thought that Gill would pussy out on us because to was quite windy and overcast, but she didn't. Good on her too! The ride destination was Gill's choice and she decided to head to Paekakariki via Airley Rd in Plimmerton.
    Being her 1st ride since May I thought it was a bit of a brave move doing the windy Airley Rd option but it all went well. The ride there was fine and following her I could see the wind was troubling the little GN250 a little. It was a solid 70km per per ...

  5. Weekly Wednesday Wedges Ride

    My best riding buddy & I get out & ride whenever we can. Together we have ridden many 1000's of kilometres and on quite a few occasions his wife Gill has pillioned . About 12 months ago she got her learners license and then got cold feet with the whole process. She is keen to ride but has struggled to get some mileage under her belt, and has not ridden since May 2009.
    So starting this week for this summer I am planning on going for a ride every week and sampling potatoe wedges at different ...
