The alarm goes off at 4:15am on a Sunday morning. Bugger!!! We crawled out of bed and got ourselves organised and we were on the road by 4:55am.
Had a good run into town, hardly anybody on the motorway. We are the first to arrive at Fred Ambler Lookout. Before too long there are 8 other groups from the club ready for the dawn breaker.
Awaiting the start we chatted with old friends and new, while the container terminal below was a buzz of activity. We were set off with instructions a couple of minutes apart.
We went along the waterfront through Glendowie and Tamaki, Pakuranga and headed to Whitford, Maraetai, Clevedon, up Ormiston Road and into East Tamaki for breakfast. I know most of these roads so it was like meeting old friends.
A fabulous couple of hours on some brilliant roads with great people.
Thanks Murray and Shirley for organising the run.
For those that missed it, come along next year.
