    After this weekend's endeavours, the 30km ride into the office felt a whole lot quicker than it usually does!

    Out of interest, did anybody see a speed camera or a van in the Waikino Gorge on the weekend of the ride? I've just received an infringement fee for 94 in an 80 Oops.

    I saw a couple in the 100 zone and one may have got me as I was passing. The first one was south of Thames somewhere on the only bit of straight road with no double yellow. Saw him and realised it was a camera when I saw the tinted windows but was committed to the pass. Did slow a bit. Can only hope the other car was in the frame. Saw another north of Turangi but can't remember where. Definitely saw this one in time. Nothing in the mail yet but they take time sometimes.

    Well I had plenty of time stuck behind maybe 10 cars and a slow light truck who wouldn't pull over even when there where opportunities.
    Down to 40 in some parts or less.
    Saw at least 1 car and 2 fixed cameras.

    No hurry, when your out for a cruise and not familiar with a lot of the roads.

    Good idea doing the Coro loop early

    Well dam it. I got one from the same location and I did not see any camera there. Got me 91 in an 80. On re-checking my video there is a camera pole there tucked up in the bushes and very hard to see. It is just beside a sign. Time to update the GPS because it doesn't have this on on it.

    1KC 2019 is announced for 9 Nov this year.

    My first attempt in 2017 saw me failing to finish, but still achieved 850km.

    This time around I have a better bike, slightly more talent and some proper wet weather gear.

    Anyone else going to have a crack at this ?

    TT2000 is set for 28 Feb 2020, so this years 1KC will determine if I enter the TT.
