I found the owner of a bicycle I have previously admired on High Street - train spotter heaven!
And caught up with a couple of Frockers I met on the Frocks Day Out
I also had the pleasure of meeting my first bicycling canine - very nice outfit too!
It even had 'shades' - cycle chic or what?!
We set off 'on mass', and oh what a buzz - there were a few uncharitable comments from the usual (non-cycling) sort of Auckland idiot - but it was superb, for one afternoon, to own the road!!
Symonds Street got a bit tricky, but the guys from Critical Mass did an excellent job of traffic control and even some of the Frocks who are generally 'pavement cyclists', felt safe and had heaps of fun!
Safety in numbers - we've just got to get more people on their bicycles!
