More News From Nowhere

Ride slow, look fast

It’s a motto that is well used by Caleb when doing photo shoots.  An awesome photographer can make a average rider look good. Even me.



Beer of the week: Number of the yeast.

Epic Pale Ale has been a favourite of mine for a while now.  But it’s been surpassed in my hierachy of hops by a new brew from the Auckland boys. 

Welcome to Armageddon.  It’s like an apocalypse of flavour in your mouth.  And a 6.66% assault on your senses and basic motor skills. We tried it for the first time on Friday at the Malthouse, and one pint was all that was needed to herald the arrival of a new favourite ale (and an imminent hangover).  Who says nothing good ever comes out of Auckland (besides State Highway 1)?

Monday felt like a real summers day.  And I have the sunburn to prove it.
