John and Sue Tour Aotearoa 2018
John and Sue O'Malley from Christchurch riding the Tour Aotearoa from Cape Reinga, northern point of New Zealand's North Island, down to Bluff, the bottom of the South Island, a bike ride of over 3000km.
John and Sue had set their alarm for 3 45am this morning and battled headwinds all the way from Masterton, over the Rimutaka Incline and to Wellington, at a rough guess close to 150km. A pretty decent ride any day of the week, but very special considering todays southerlies. If I was wearing I hat, I'd be tipping to them about now now ;-)
Thank you John and Sue for stopping for a quick chat and photo, and the very best for the second half of your trip.
