This is going to be where I'll tell my experiences with different organized bunch rides accross Auckland. There are many of these around and I've had good, average and bad experiences with them. The reviews are based only on my personal experience and expectations and limited to what what has happened in the day I went out.
Today was time for a long ride, the programme says 100km minimum. As always we didn't have anything set in stone with my mate Gordon, so I decided it was good to join the IBike bunch, he was meant to come, but living in the other side of town sometimes is not the easiest for him or me.
IBike is a well known bike shop in Auckland and the guys there are always good help. Once a month they do a long long ride and I keep getting the newsletter and never got to join them for one reason or other.
As I've never rode with them I was a bit hesitant, but as soon as I got to the shop the people that was there were nice besides the early morning so that put me in the mood for a good day out.
Back home we had a misunderstanding with Nat and she was of the idea I would arrive 2 hour later than I did, so we improvised a brunch instead of the planned canelloni. And as I said before, I love a good brekkie, and this is kind of what I'm talking about. What can I say? Iove my wife
