    Meet at the Peg at 10:30

    Have to keep an eye on http://maps.aa.co.nz at the moment it's saying the Cones Rd Bridge in Rangiora is closed from flooding.
    There's also one for Rakaia River Bridge but I don't think they'll be working on a bjeus holiday.

    Yep the Cones Road bridge is closed and looking at the river level I cant see it opening much before tomorrow night.
    Cross Ashley river on SH1 bridge and hang a left just after to come out at Sefton.

    Was going to do a ride on Anzac day but weather not looking good.
    So thinking about doing a ride round the Block on Saturday 26th.
    Early departure.

    I would have come along, but I think it might be a bit too much since I'm doing the CCC Loop Anzac day.
    Enjoy your ride.

    Would have been keen too but already have plans for similar with J on our own time frame, don't know if we will actually do the block as such but likely be on the coast for a late lunch.

    Is by the block do you mean over the Arthurs and Lewis? I might be keen to do it Sunday but would have to leave you at Hamner to head home to Blenheim.

    Awesome day for it Sat. Hope you made it out. I only got as far as a run around the hills on that day but with everyone away on holiday traffic was sparse (notably absent were those pesky groups of push bikes).

    J and I visited the beach where the Coast to Coast starts then nipped down the road to Hokitika for afternoon tea before returning home.
    It was a little weird, heaps of cars etc parked at various towns and parking areas along the way but the moving traffic itself felt very light and when we actually had other vehicles near us it all flowed well.
    Fantastic weather both sides of the island if a little cool once the sun set.
    Home about 7:30pm.
