Ride before Bride
Most people might spend the eve of their wedding preparing vows or confirming last-minute changes. But Evan Floden spent the day tackling a gruelling cycle race.
Napier-born Floden lives in Spain but flew to New Zealand at the end of December to visit family and marry his partner Veronica.
On Friday, the 30-year-old competed in the Hawke's Bay Summer Cycling Carnival time trial event, a 23-kilometre flying lap that started and finished at Taradale's Church Road Winery.
Clearly not exhausted from all that, Floden also managed to squeeze in a 75km ride around Napier on Saturday morning before regaining his breath in time to attend a small family lunch, followed by a quick trip to the registry office with Veronica.
