Biking on the Straight and Narrow…..


Hoki to Ross cycleway

Out on our bikes at the weekend making the most of the gorgeous weather.

Mahinapua walkway

Beautiful start along the Mahinapua Walkway just south of Hokitika.

This is going to be part of the West Coast Wilderness Trail.  Gorgeous scenery and lots of history.

Nice and easy through the forest – and reasonably straight and flat.

But not as straight and flat as the next section of biking we did.

Straight as straight as straight is straight

Did I mention straight……

historic bridge totara river

Will be lovely when finished with lots of bridges to cross over creeks and ending with one fantastic historic bridge across the Totara River near Ross at the end.

It will be a majestic sight to see.

For now though – back to straight as straight as straight is straight to get back to the start.

Final stop to view one of the pretty creeks and back in need of a little stretch.

Now for the straight drive home……

Jan and Stephen run Breakers Boutique Accommodation on the Great Coast Road north of Greymouth.  They enjoy getting out and about and exploring the many things there are to see and do on the West Coast.

    Hey Jan, the last photo of you doing bending over doing your stretches, I mis-read the sentence “Final stop to view one of the pretty CHEEKS”. Seriously though, what a beautiful bike ride. Good information here. You guys have the best of so many worlds!
