We are now staying with friends in Blenheim in the South Island and we have sun...lots of it!!
I'm riding further and going up bigger hills than usual..so despite eating well but sparingly I'm staying the same weight by losing fat and gaining muscle!!
There is an old style velodrome here too, so we can train for our racing to come in April.

There are club rides from here three times a week and smaller roads we can ride around.
Today we have been reducing the height of a laurel hedge, mowing lawns as well as the usual housework assistance. It is good to feel useful and lend a hand.

Glad to hear you have some sun. It is 26 degrees here right now.

Glad you are getting sun! one of the best reasons for making that long plane trip :) And congratulations on improving your fitness. I need to do a bit more myself.
