Last Friday Sumner road reopened to traffic, Including cyclists (including me) and walkers (although the road isn't great for walkers as there isn't much room and there are lots of blind corners).
Cars are supposed to be going at 30 km an hour because of the roadworks, but they are going much faster. So are the bicycles going downhill. Except me. I’m a wuss.
The boyfriend and I took our Jack Russell friend in the Land Rover up and over the pass today to go to Sumner . It's great to be able to do that more easily, to go to beach and the bakery and even to pick up some free comfrey plants at the share stand. Score! Hopefully we will be back more often, not just at the beach, but also the Hollywood Cinema and some great local restaurants.
