One thing I do like is a bit of a hikeabike up into the snow line as there’s one thing guaranteed is that the views around here in the Tweed valley are stunning.

Wynyard Worlds

Wynyard Worlds

It hasn’t rained in weeks. We are living in a dust bowl, and each ride ends in a severe case of pneumoconiosis.
