Hi, here a quick update as the wifi is really bad. More stories and pictures will come later. We are now in Fairlie.
Our bikes arived in one piece so we were happy. Slept for 12 hours from Saturday to Sunday. Sunday was rainy but we bought all of our stuff we needed in Christchurch. We left on Tuesday, and biking went really well. So far most of it has been flat and/or a bit of nepali flat and that is stuff we know. Given Ivars untrained legs and Annekes recent history we are happy to say we biked 262km already in just 4 days 🙂
The weather is great, people are nice. We’ll tell more once we have finished the alps to ocean trail starting in lake Tekapo, which is just another 40km or so from Fairlie. The alps to ocean trail is about 240km and ends in Omaru.
