Pauline arranged for the most fun outing: a 5 person trike ride around Dunedin and Otago Harbour! This bike chick loved it, as did everyone else. What a blast!
We met our guide Andrew, owner of Experience Dunedin at The Octagon in the Central Business District of Dunedin, and soon we were off.
Andrew obligingly hit the gas and we found ourselves hooting out loud with excitment!
The roads were curvy and changed elevation frequently, and I was reminded of riding back home in southwest Virginia. Well, except for the “wrong side” of the road thing.
The views of the harbour were incredible and these photos do not do them justice.
Alys took some great photos with her selfie stick, so please visit her blog to see more!
Thank you, Pauline, for arranging for this fun, fun outing, and to Alys for treating us!
Wow looks like a blast Laurie 😀 We might have to see about one of these trikes for the next Monochromia meet up. Great shots.
I’m telling you, Joe, this was a blast! Andrew told us that there are only 7 of these trikes in the world. 3 speed automatic. Pretty cool!
You might have to have your next Monochromia meetup in NZ Joe xo
Now that would be fantastic Pauline 😀
That looks like the most beautiful spot on earth to be. How absolutely beautiful those photos make it look. I would love to ride the trike and maybe even drive it if I could still learn how. Thanks for capturing the essence of the experience.
Marlene, the ride was so much fun! Exilerating, with great friends and gorgeous scenery!
Laurie wanted to drive it too Marlene – she wasn’t allowed …… but he does a pretty good job 😀
I can see an entrepreneurial venture for Laurie right there.
I have never seen a machine like that! What fun, and it looks absolutely gorgeous!
Cindy, it was a blast! Can’t wait to hear about your trip!
Blast. You’ve nicked my word for your responses. 🙂
Looks like a ton of fun!
I think the photo showing the speed of the bike and the back of Andrew’s head should be on his website! I’ll see if I can text him the link to this post.
Great idea, Pauline!

Now here’s an adventure everyone can enjoy – again it’s from Laurie’s post, go see what fun we had on the four passenger trike ……..
What a brilliant way to travel.
Leave it to Pauline to plan a great outing! I loved these photo!
WHAT an adventure! I love that machine and all the photos in the rear view mirror!
What a hoot! I could barely hang onto my phone, let alone get any shot’s as nice as these! Isn’t Dunedin just so picturesque? I’m glad we were able to get this view of Dunedin too, from the hills beyond and across the harbour. I’d say Andrew was a great host, knowledgeable and easy on the eye’s too (tee-hee). xo kpb
