Manukau coastal cruise

Day 118, Sunday 17 December 2017.

I joined a North Harbour Ulysses ride today which visited a number of sights on the northern side of the Manukau Harbour. The first stop was at Mt Atkinson, a lookout I have not previously visited. The access road is steep with sharp corners, and the bike in front of me had trouble navigating it. The view over Titirangi and the Manukau Harbour is worth the trouble.

Our second stop was at Cornwallis Wharf, from which we could look back at the red glory of pōhutukawa trees in flower.

The final stop was at Huia, where we parked in the shade and had a picnic lunch.

Distance travelled: 130 km. Total distance so far: 16,645 km
