Anne is exploring by boat today, going on a Mail Boat run around the Marlborough Sounds. Great idea!

It seemed strange biking by myself. Anne is better at up-hills and seeing her ahead inspires me to keep going when the going gets tough. Fortunately, the hills today were manageable and there was definitely more down than up, just the way I like it! The view of Havelock from the other side of the inlet and views of the Sounds along the scenic route to Picton were inspiration in themselves.

Finally, down into Picton. Suddenly I saw a familiar face! Katie Underwood, a friend from Brooklyn, is about to start a different multi day bike ride down South Island, so we idled away an hour or so before I booked in on the Bluebridge Ferry. I can’t quite believe it’s all over.

The last couple of days have definitely been cooler but, incredibly, we have not had to bike in the rain at all; our wet weather day in Ross was the only day-time rain on our trip. So lucky!!


….. Anne for planning the trip in the first place and being such a great bike buddy.

….. Oliver Druce for giving us such good forecasts and keeping the weather gods on our side.

…… my husband, Warren, for being my greatest support person.

Many, many thanks to all my sponsors who have helped raise $4,380 for Wellington Women’s Refuge.

My page is open until 6 March if you know anyone who would like to help make it a nice, round $4.5k!
