Looked out the window to see frost in garden -2 Deg but a clear sky so looking good.
Wrapped up with multiple layers headed off stopped at Feilding to fuel up and grabbed a quick coffee. Got chatting to another biker who was just going home to get changed for a ride.. Lot of people out today getting the most out of a clear day.
North from Feilding Mrs B wanted to go up Vinegar Hill one of our favorite roads, some caution needed on some shaded areas that hadnt had the sun to dry them off.
|Me and Mrs B at Stormy Point Lookout|
Stopped at Stormy Point lookout with about 20 other people their allready. Fantastic view of Mount Ruapehu and further away Mount Taranaki (Egmont). Stopped for a few pics then off to Hunterville for lunch.

Set off for Wanganui on Mangahoe Road another favorite road but again some slippery bits that needed to be riden with respect.
Stopped in Wanganui at Sister-in-laws for a cup of coffee and quick catch up. Then headed home on main highway got home just as it was getting dark and cold.. 360kms and a great day :-)
