Welcome to Cambridge New Zealand – WRCH2010 Park & Ride Blue

Welcome to Cambridge New Zealand

Corner Lamb and Carlyle Streets Leamington
A delightful contrast in building styles. The portacom? arrived in the past few of days and will no doubt service Park & Ride Blue (northern and western traffic) for the 2010 Rowing World Championshipswhich I take to be the paddock to our right. Silage has been harvested and the big green bales removed this morning – a very productive form of grooming. Beyond – the ubiquitous Rosswood Contour Barn – we have always referred to them simply as Rosswood hay barns – manufactured right here in the heart of Leamington. Beyond the former Leamington Dairy Factory (c.1910 – I might have this date slightly wrong). We are on the Cambridge greenbelt on the corner of  Lamb Street, Rotoorangi Road and Carlyle Street in Leamington, New Zealand.

ALL northern traffic from Auckland, Hamilton and the western areas is expected to use this facility. Traffic coming from the north on State Highway 1 will be diverted down State Highway 1B at Taupiri and will then proceed towards Tamahere to Mystery Creek Road. Here, Auckland vehicles will meet Hamilton traffic which will be advised to use State Highway 3. The routes will converge and proceed down Kaipaki Road to the parking area.

Maunga Cycle Challenge

Not a sport video or an art work – rather an exercise in editing using Windows Movie Maker. The timing begins with the first riders and notes the time lapse – approximately – of those following. The race, the Maunga Cycle Challenge, captured with the Canon G10 as it passes through the intersection of Lamb Street and Carlyle StreetRoto-o-Rangi Road on the boundary of Leamington and Pukekura. The Maunga Cycle Challenge started and finished in Te Awamutu.
