Cycling adventure 🌏 a tour around Devonport, Auckland!
December 19, 2016
For the last 6 months I've been ultra keen about getting a bike and becoming some kind of cycling champ - this didn't quite happen in the UK but I decided that last week it easy about time I got my act together!
So off I went and consulted trusty Google, with the help of my sister, and found a fairly easy (and flat) route around Devonport. I mainly wanted something just to get my started to see if 1. I could even sit on and bike and not fall off and 2. Build my fitness up slowly before I go on some 30km route!
I found cycle kings in Devonport, rented a bike for half a day which I think was around $40, came with the helmet, bike and some great tips and map route from the lady who worked there! She was super friendly and helpful and this area was so pretty- now I can't really map read so I think next time I'd go on a group tour thing rather than by myself as I'd just get lost!!! Lucky enough for this route I was only going a short distance and was out for a round an hour once I had started and stopped a few times and taken some pictures!
I decided to treat myself to breakfast and coffee on the pier - make sure you check out Devon on the Wharf this place it had such a good vibe, I went back there this morning and read my book whilst watching the rain patter down - pretty chilled out!! It's my happy place :).
I'm hoping to go off on some more cycling adventures once I've built up some more bike fitness - and learned how to NOT wobble - and take some more awesome photos!!!
