Picnic and bike ride on the beach? If I must!
Bottle Lake Forest is north east of Christchurch City. For us Bottle Lake is the best of both worlds! A bit of mountain biking on the tracks through the forest and some lovely views of the beach when you pop out the other end. Can’t go wrong with a forest on the beach! There are lots of walks and biking tracks to chose from, we sampled one today called the South Pegasus Track. Although we did go the wrong way (stupid sign!) and ended up missing out about one quarter of the track! Never mind, we still had a good time and got some great views of the beach. What’s even better is that it’s just over 10 minutes drive from our house!
And today is officially the first day of spring, woo 😀
