Minties all around: greeting from windy Welly

Sorry that it’s been a few days since my last post. My plan was to upload a photo or two and some stories daily from the front lines on our Silver Fern trip but we’ve been on the move lately and internet has not been available. What a trip we’re having. Man. You those days where you feel like you’ve packed in two day’s worth of fun and memories? Well, we’ve been packing in what feels like a week’s worth each day here in New Zealand. Seriously. The riding in New Zealand is UNREAL. We’re now in Wellington, the capital, which is located on the southern tip of the North Island. Gone are the big grassy wide-open mountains mountains of the Southern Alps and now we’re riding in dense tropical forest with sweet sounds of songbirds and palm trees and ferns as big as cars. We just wrapped up day two here in Welly and I’d have to say that this place has to be one of the best out-of-the-door riding cities that I’ve ever ridden in. Hat’s off to Wellington, thank you so very much for letting us ride your sweet trails…we’ll be back.
OK, how much fun does this look like?
Hmmmmm Minties....
Scott, about to drop in on Welly...
