Last year a small group of us completed a long distance ride from Lake Ferry to Cape Reinga in a day. This year three of us set out to cover Picton to Bluff on the South Island.
Friday night we caught the ferry in Wellington and then stayed over just outside Picton. Saturday morning we hit the road at 6am and finally made it to Invercargill at 5:50pm. We checked into the motel and the headed off for the final leg down to Bluff. Then we took two days to ride back home via Queenstown and the West coast.It was a fantastic ride and the weather was very kind, we only had one downpour and that didn't last long.
I managed to get some video too.
