Cycle Ride. Groynes to Spencerville

 26 May

After half an hour of riding around in circles (literally !) our little party of 7 eventually found the trail out of The Groynes. We followed this to White's Crossing for the first leg of our trip.

We had three new friends in the group who were testing out what HTC has to offer for an outing and they were rewarded by a delightful ride in glorious weather and an easy track that mostly followed part of the Christchurch Enviro 360 Trail. After White's Crossing we followed the Waimakariri river climbing up onto the stopbank until we reached Brooklands , now sadly almost deserted since the earthquakes. From there we joined the road that runs to Spencerville and at Spencerville Park we found a shop that sold us coffee and ice creams. ( Limited choice at this time of year.)
