The reason for our weekend at our new home.
My nephew, Graeme, had entered the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge.
This challenge has been going since 1977 and now attracts over 11,000 participants from all parts of New Zealand and from overseas as well.
It was the first time for Graeme and he got such a buzz out of the whole event that he is keen to do it all over again next year.
The route around Lake Taupo took approximately 7 hours to complete and Graeme said it was a tremendous feeling to come back into the Taupo township and pass over the finish line.
By going to our new home for the weekend we were able to give Graeme and his family the use of our unit which worked out well for all concerned.
