Aaah at least, the weather today should be good but I still have a problem. My chain is dead and I’ve no idea where is the next shop…
It’s 7.30am and Bobby is already around and ask me if I’m still ok to go in town, to Clevedon, I passed through yesterday :-).
One hour later all my stuff is in his car and we drive toward Clevedon. Arrived there, there is no cycle shop but just one panel. A guy is turning in different city around and will be there in 22th of september… Heuu I don’t want to wait 3 week haha.
And then, Bobby propose me to go in the next city, Ardmore, which is 16km as well from our place. This man is really kind with me! So we reach the next point but not any shop too…
Bobby don’t seem to abandon and take me in the next bigger city, Papakura. Somebody told us there is a shop there and a big one. Here we go!
We finally reach our destination and I THANK Bobby for his help. I will come back to the same place this afternoon because I’m close to Auckland chain.
This shop is huge and I like the toilet paper support :-).
The man explain to me that I should change my chain because it arrived to the end of his life. Wouhaa already! And the price of it is 89$ for the shimano XT model. Gloups!
The man tell me too that normally it needs 4 days to repair it but for me it’s now :-) thank you man:-).
Finally I’m on the road with a perfect new chain. I will take really care now and no beach ride anymore!
Second time in Kawakawa bay and I discover something I didn’t see yesterday, a super fish letter box!
And my favourite until now : the “lego” letter box:-). Very cool!
I’m finally in the same place as yesterday. I have to be economic now. September start bad…aie aie aie my wallet!
I can change my place this time because the other one was so windy. Just next to te ocean will be perfect (when the tide will be there…).
Good night :-).
One thought on “Kawakawa bay > bicycle shop (by car) > Kawakawa bay (35km, 2h)”
How cute the mail boxes are!
