Easter 2016. Karangahake Gorge

Easter a Family Outing this time of year.

It’s always exciting to head out along the Hauraki Rail Trail from Paeroa into the Karangahake Gorge through the rail tunnel & onto Waikino Train Station Cafe. Along the journey meeting up with tourists from all parts of New Zealand.

This year, hundreds of children riding their bicycle’s along-side mum & dad. I couldn’t get over the elderly riding a bicycle, looking happy whilst viewing the scenery for which the Karangahake Gorge is known for.

I happened to ride past a group from Rotorua. I was a bit reluctant at first. (Scared to ask) never the less I gained some courage & found out where they had all come from. What sparked the photo was that I was SO impressed to see ALL the children riding their Bicycles…In fact I was really excited. Not only this group, but there were more along the trail as I continued on through the gorge to Waikino. Bicycling is all about enjoyment & fun. Non of this “breaking a sweet, pacing, going hard out”…keep that at home.
