Auckland Cycle Touring Association South Island Tour, 2006
20 February, 2006
The loneliness of the long distance touring cyclist.
The rewards for
the long distance touring cyclist.
Early morning sun on the hills : nature pretending it is Grahame Sydney.
bane of the long distance touring cyclist.
Lesley discovered that all she had to do was wait for Bryan to catch up
and her puncture was magically fixed by the wizard of bike repairs.
Lesley and Cathy on the approach to the Lindis.
Munchy time at the top. There are two more cyclists on the last bend.
The southern side of the Lindis. The start of 15 km of yeeeha! downhill.
A belated rest spot at the end of the aforementioned yeeeha!
Happy hour at Tarras. Peter is probably doing a Banjo Paterson poem for us.
We were happy houring while our dinner was being cooked
for us by our wonderful hosts.
We were staying in sheep shearers' quarters which are used only a couple
of times each year for their prime purpose. For the rest of the year they make for
good back packer accommodation a couple of km away from downtown Tarras.
Rinny is calculating how much we all need to put in to pay for our tucker.
