Probably going to the gym would help too.

Jesus Christ I need to stop eating junk and lose some bloat. I’m a beast, not a good beast either. One that hides under the bed.

COOKIES ARE DELICIOUS AND YOU NEED SOME.

Scraggly hair. In case people thought my hair was dead straight. It’s not. It’s not even curly, it’s just scraggly. #airdried #tootiredtoblowdry #scragglemonster

Massive!

Boy am I glad we saved our bike adventure for the last day of holiday - everything is wet and muddy!

We got up this morning and drove the 20 something kms to the Cross Creek entrance to the Rimutaka Rail Trail, just outside Featherston. It was glorious and sunny, but horrendously windy (not very surprised at that, Wellington is known for it’s wind).

Geared up and off on our adventure. It was 17kms to the Kaitoke carpark, where we decided we would ride to, depending in how we felt & the weather. Since you’re riding on the old railway track, it’s a nice well formed path and the gradient was 15 to 1, given that we were travelling through the ranges.

It was definitely hard going up, we stopped for lots of pics and went slowly, so it took forever to go 6kms to the summit - about 1.5h. 3 tunnels and one fording a river later, we reached the cross creek summit rest stop. We decided to forge ahead the next 11kms, praying it was nothing like the gruelling climb before. It wasn’t. It was a nice gentle flattish track all the way to Kaitoke - only marred by lots and lots of wind and rain! We sheltered for lunch and then braved more rain for the return 17kms.

Absolutely saturated and with josh out of energy and thighs almost out of juice, we reached the cross creek summit again, which meant we were done with pedalling and we could just coast down hill - or fly down would be a more apt description! Pretty much brakes the whole way down, through 3 tunnels, across a river and down down down at super speeds, covered in sprayed mud and thoroughly drenched, even my undies were muddy, we made it back to the car.

Great day despite the weather! I’m glad we persevered through the rain to our intended destination, and most definitely glad I don’t need to use my trainers after this, they need a good wash and dry out!

Never has an Easter egg tasted so good after a hard days riding!
