On June 22, Dunedin celebrated Midwinter and the longest night of the year with a lantern festival through the city and around the central octagon (the main meeting hub in town). The theme this year was “The Never Ending Night” and aimed to highlight the creatures and beauty of Antarctica.
This past weekend, Tom and I got out onto our bikes and headed off on a nearby trail. In Central Otago, the Clutha Gold bike trail is a relatively easy ride of just under 75 km along the lovely Clutha river between Roxburgh and Lawrence.
With the weather looking relatively good (for autumn!), we drove out to Lawrence early on Saturday morning where a friendly transfer from Lawrence Bike Transfers were ready to ship us and our bikes out to Roxburgh Village and the start of the trail.
