Just come back from a ride to a gorgeous part of Wellington, about a 20 minute drive from my home, I'm so lucky to live here, thought I'd share some photos with you guys!

Enjoy

Rich

Looks like a nice ride. I rode the Bonty to a lighthouse yesterday, but St Marys Island isn't as spectacular as that. Didn't take the camera and i was trying to outrun the approaching weather anyway. I failed and got soaked :lol:
