Nice training session

[CS] Sunday saw 2/3 of the team (minus jerome) heading out for a decent length of bike/walk/bike. Weather wasn't playing ball despite being reasonably OK on the way out. We headed North up the Hutt Valley to 'Kiwi Ranch' which is at the base of Puffer Saddle - otherwise known as the Gateway to marchant Ridge and the wider Tararuas. A speedy bike up there had us starting to trek in an ever increasnig rain band. Into Smiths Creek was wet wet wet and the climb back out up to the ridge was hard work. Nice loop though. Getting back on the bikes the weather seemed to have turned from the South which meant a nice headwind. The pelting rain was a bit sore on the way into Te Marua and a dairy stop for Coke was just the ticket. Great grind back home though - if it isn't raniing then it isn't training.

Spot track can be found here (for all sessions actually) :
