Rimutaka Cycle Trail 135km ... DONE!
A "must-do" Wellington ride all cyclists should do at least once. Very pleased to report that I was firing on all cylinders right to the very end after leaving home at 7am and getting almost 13.5 hours later, a real adventure.
Having to be totally self sufficient I carried my Personal Locator Beacon with me as there was no cellphone coverage on the south coast and I carried a complete spare tyre as well as tubes. And .... possibly a distance record between coke stops, The Four Square at Eastbourne to the Mangaroa Store - 95kms between shop stops! Ironically I was "in the groove" so kept going until Silverstream New World, a whole 110km between shop stops!
