Evan is a former NZ high-schools Triathlon champion from the late-80s. Like me, he is trying to regain his fitness. Evan and I did a lot of cycling, while the girls shopped and sipped cappuccinos.
The weekend was as follows:
Saturday: Drive to Rotorua, and 2 hour ride around Lake Rotorua (50km)
Sunday: Ride from Rotorua to Whakatane (85km)
Monday: Ride from Whakatane to Mt. Manganui (86km)
The distances were far from epic, but good riding for the off-season nevertheless.
