"I am enjoying a fantastic trip to New Zealand. I've just taken part in the yearly Forrest Grape Ride - the second biggest bike ride in NZ. It is very well attended and includes the full course at 101k, a shorter course at 42k, as well as other group events including cyclists recovering from cancer. The riders start and finish at Forrest Estate and there is a prize-giving ceremony plus food and drink available at the estate - a great event for the community! Camilla covered in Pinot Noir grapesThe '100 virgin grape crushing' event completes the day. A great delight was taken in announcing "Camilla from the UK" as I tentatively jumped into a tub of Pinot. Well that certainly shook the jet lag out of me! I've still 'got the t-shirt' - thankfully now washed as it was starting to 'hum'! You can find out more about the Grape Ride here.
