Sweet South Island Singletrack - Ticked!
As our tour of the incredible riding of the South Island ends with a last brekkie, the first spots of rain of the week fall in Queenstown.
Big thanks to Liam Doherty, Trent Moore, Jason Collins (Little Jason), Russ McKinnon, Gregg Berry, Matthew Carmichael, Tony Butcher, Jason Yin (Big Jason) for your fine company on and off the trails.
Oh, and not forgetting Martin the Magpie who swooped the trails with us.
We'll do it again for sure!
Sweet South Island Singletrack....that's what we called it, that's what it's been...
One more day to go
Anyone know how to fly this thing?
Day 4 of SSIS saw us having far too much fun up on the thyme infested uplands around Alexandra in Central Otago. Matt, whose day job is as a pilot for Jetstar, seems to like flying on his holidays too. Most - but not all - of us kept our wheels on the ground.
Today we had the pleasure of the company and local knowledge of lettuce farmer Mark Smith and cherry farmer Dennis Paulin, both of who rode our Biking the Boot tour in Italy in 2014.
Keeping it local it's time to head to the local brewery here in Clyde for pre-dinner drinks.....
Sweet South Island Singetrack rides on in the sunshine.......
From the exposed mountain trails of Craigieburn yesterday to the berms of Wanaka today. From an Alpine lodge up high to G&T's and glamping on a sheep station (and we're certainly not racing for them.....)
Sweet South Island Singletrack is on its way: Day 1 from the sea to the mountains.....
Staying tonight in a lonely Alpine Lodge at Porters where we were the first group to ride a newly built trail officially opening soon.
