I’ve got to keep this short as I’ve already written the Australia summary thingy this evening and I’m losing sleep.
As a tribute to New Zealand and it’s people, I’m going to overuse the word ‘Awesome’… when in Rome…
This morning was awesome. Riding out of Dunedin (and up a long steep climb) at sunrise was pretty spectacular. In the first 40km I climbed 750m (which is a lot) and the hills offered some awesome scenery.
The day got progressively flatter and slightly more boring but it was still awesome. Having my Dad with me has been great. Despite the distance, the day felt fairly straightforward so I hope that continues throughout New Zealand.
My knee pain was still there but it has already improved a huge amount so things are looking up! It’s actually not that long until I’ll be in the States…
