Start of the geothermal adventure on the Te Ara Ahi trail.

We got briefly lost in Rotorua and abducted by fruit monsters.


And mud pools.

Some of the trail went literally through the active zones, with the ground smoking beneath our wheels.


Just had to!!


The trail was amazing ‘Sadie’ did very well considering the tyre thickness. Ended in a idilic Lake which was unfortunately contaminated so no swimming.


Though some were ignoring the warning signs.


Encountered a lovely lady that took a interest in our trip then kindly assisted us in getting water from some local campers. Met Gavin from Portsmouth, but lives in Bristol, crazy small world!! He is cycling for three charities please see his blog here.
