I got an early start this morning because I was hoping to make it to Geraldine before the end of the day. I had to climb out of the gorge and make a total of 80km on the bike to do that. I really wanted to get here. I felt like I hadn't seen civilization in a while, it had been two days without Internet to post blogs and even longer without enough that I could upload my photos without hitting the data cap. I've been getting some noises on my bike that I couldn't fix myself and supposedly there's a bike shop here (though I couldn't find it today).
Geraldine isn't really a big place, population of 1500 and the kind of place everything fits on the one main road but I like it and think I'm taking a rest day tomorrow to get my bike back to normal and let my legs have a rest as Mt. Michael and Burke Pass are both in my next 80km of riding as I head towards Lake Tekapo.
you better give way like that sign asks
Give way is on a ton of signs and often written on the road as well heh.
Just so you know, I’m paying all these magpies to attack you. Think of them as nature’s nerf darts. 🙂
I tried punching a couple today, no luck.
