If it was that easy, everyone would do it. I’ve fallen off the mountain bike, been stung on the lip by a bee, my van, rear sliding door has packed a sad and I can’t access my fridge!
Lots of riding: one day a 600m climb, followed by two day-rides of 7hr and a 3hr ride on third day.
It’s been cold up here in the Central North Island, in Summer, much to my surprise: snow. At least six days of torrential rain!
But I would not swap this for anything, the light, the colours, the experiences, the people you meet, are priceless to me. Sure reminds me just how lucky I am to live in the south (Southland).
