    I would be keen for that - when i said i dont want to ride to a pub is - I dont drink and dont like riding with people who have been, but if it is a decent ride and stop for lunch somewhere then all good.

    Todays ride to Kaikoura - awesome the weather started out foggy but was gone by Woodend. Turned out nice and warm.
    Leader Rd was good but a wee bit of gravel - was posted but not all the way. Changed to 100kmh and still gravel for another km.
    Had a good feed in Kaikoura and a good ride home along the coast. Traffic heavy but well behaved.

    In all a great day - pity more people didnt come along.Thanks for the company Shoshoni.

    Will be having a ride on Anzac day for those who dont want to go on the St John ride. Weather dependant.

    Yes it was nice to get out of town for a ride, no Porsche this time unless they got pinged by those 4 cops sitting on the hill

    Next ride for me is the Avon City ride this coming Sunday.

    I am a shift worker so we cant make it to many rides but in saying that its great to be in the loop and will catch up eventually!

    In regard to pub stops, we like to have an Amstel light or similar "cause its all about the ride !!!!!! (and good company of course!!)

    The way they were looking at me I wouldn't be surprised if some were clutching their crucifixes. Have you picked up that Tag yet?

    Anyway Sunday is looking half way descent for a ride any takers.

    I was thinking about doing the three gorges again, coming back form little river way tonight there's a lot of surface flooding.

    I'm open to any other suggestions.

    3 gorges sounds good, if weather fine - what time do you want to meet?
