While on the northern hemisphere the timing is perfect for this ride (The middle of of a summer weekend), until here in New Zealand we are “battling” with a winter night. :-)
Putting the bitching aside, the ride was awesome! All of us were wearing enough layers to keep us warm and proper safety gear to stay visible.
We were also very lucky, because the weather was dry and clear and the almost full waxing moon was casting a thin silver layer over the scenery, and made it appear almost unreal at some spots.
We could take a few pictures only at the meeting point.
It was truly a memorable ride and we will do it again in 2018.
