Today I cycled to Richmond to visit a friend. After an accident yesterday it was fantastic to have an excuse to get out for a good ride down some of our great cycle tracks to Richmond and put the it behind me. It was a fantastic day to be out on a bike an exactly what I needed. I met some great cyclists on the way including Gail on the Annesbrook overpass as she was on the way to Nelson to follow the councils heritage walk. She said she uses the railway reserve regularly and loves the new Great Taste Trail to Rabbit Island.
