Photos from Te Hapua Road uploading to Flickr

Sorry for the delay - it's finally happening. I managed to get the photo edits finished this morning and have set the upload running on another computer rather than wait until later this evening to start it.

It's a big set - over 1100 shots - I'd considered doing a second run through to cull a few more but I just couldn't face it ;-) With a ride so well attended, and a "photographer's course" where riders may go past several times in both directions it's inevitable there'll be a lot of raw material.

The photos can be accessed through the photos page on the club website as usual. For those of you who are new to the club, the photos are free for your personal use. There are some simple terms and conditions on the same page, along with some instructions for how to download if you're not familiar with Flickr. If you want prints, it's DIY and you can either use an on-line service or you can take the files to your preferred photo processor.

The slide show on the photos page won't show anything until I tag the photos after they've all uploaded, so don't worry - nothing's broken.

I hope you're all looking forward to Maymorn, and fingers crossed for kind weather.

By the way, if you've still not pre-entered, try our new on-line pre-entries form. We haven't done anything much to promote it yet, but a few of you have already found it and used it, so we hope it was a good experience.

Hope to see many of you at the next ride.

Te Hapua Results posted

Well, what a fantastic first ride for the season! I don't know how we got so lucky with the weather, but we sure got the gap. A great trail and an excellent venue. I was amazed when I got back from my walk to see how many more vehicles had been packed into the ride base - well done the ground crew.

The results have now been posted to the results page.

Photos are still some way off, sorry - there are so many to go through and the day job keeps getting in the way, but I'll endeavour to have them out as soon as possible - definitely aiming to have them done before Maymorn.
