I rode to the top of Mount Victoria in Devonport today. There are lovely views over Auckland city, the Waitemata Harbour, and the North Shore.
The hill was fortified during the Russian Scare of the 1880s, but the “disappearing gun” now on display was installed in 1899.
Distance travelled: 39 km. Total distance so far: 6510 km
