The Omokoroa cycle way is finally open!๐Ÿšฒ๐Ÿšฒ๐Ÿšฒ

Hooray! The long awaited cycle way from Omokoroa to Te Puna ( + nearly to Bethlehem…) is finally opened! Folks, I have been waiting for this for years! In May 2015 I went to the rally with my mum, friend and youngest son and cycled from Fergusson Park to downtown Tauranga to show our support along with hundreds of other cyclists of the then proposed cycle way.ย  My baby who is now nearly 7 years old ๐Ÿ˜ฒ was 3 years old then and rode in the baby bike seat!

Here we are back in 2015!๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ‘Š

So to go the full circle๐Ÿ˜‰, we headed along to the official opening a few weeks back and enjoyed a leisurely ride from Omokoroa to Plummers Pt/ Huhurua Habour Park and Ongarahu Pa site with the excited crowd.

Here’s my baby now!

It was great to see all sorts of people out on their bikes both pedal power and e-bike (VERY popular where I live) as well as families pushing strollers, people with their pooches, and walkers.

My family will no doubt be utilizing the track to cycle to new fishing spots! ๐Ÿคฃ๐ŸŸObsessed much?!!

Also I admit I quite like the thought of a long lunch at the Cider Factorie, in Te Puna and then a cycle ride home!๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿšฒ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ‘

๐Ÿ‘‰Here are a few more pics taken today, a true reflection of the weather here currentlyโ˜”๐ŸŒจ P.s See that cute little pool it is full of naturally occurring warm thermal water! I noticed the steam today- foot spa anyone?
