Took my bike out to Riverhead yesterday to check out what the West Coast Riders Club have been up to in their block of forest.

Yesterday I rode a bunch of Woodhill trails for what might be the last time. Next week the loggers arrive to harvest the pine trees. The bike park hopes to be able to repair the tracks afterwards, but they will be out in the open for quite a few years; the sandy surface will dry out faster and be less fun to ride.
After installing several new drains on the bike track last week, I was keen to test them out.

I surprised two wild deer as I arrived at the Connifer Grove picnic area in Woodhill Forest this morning. Bikes travel fairly quietly, so I was only a hundred metres or so away before they bounded off. A normal height wire fence didn’t even slow them down!
After dropping Judith at school this morning, I ducked into the bush behind Massey University to put the finishing touches on the berm I have been making on the Royal Albany Bicycle Trail.
Leaving my car parked at the Warehouse, I headed off on foot up the Albany highway and down Bush road to Rosedale Park. On the far side of the park is the start of the cycle way.
