Today I am in Oamaru NZ getting ready for a bike ride from up on Mout Cook all the way down to the ocean. My plan is to take a shuttle up to Mt Cook from here and ride back to here which is the end of the trail. I will leave unnecessary junk behind and only carry what I need for this ride. I hope the weather allows me to do this. The forecast for today and tomorrow is rain at lower elevations and snow at higher ones. I will not do the ride if there is more than an inch or so of snow on the ground or if the trail seems too slippery from frost and ice. The temperature forecast is from a low of 31 to a high of 34 so it will be very cold at the start of the ride. I hope I can ride far enough down into warmer temps before I need to camp for the first night.
Here are a few pics from the last couple days. Check out the little bluey pizza ingredients for the pizza I had last night over at the Scotts brew pub, it was very tasty. My night in the pub was a strange one. I walked in the door and there was a girl on her knees looking up at me like we just finished. Then I looked around the pub and it was all men. I had one pint and all the men left and were replaced by all women for the rest of the night. I had a good time the entire night and the beer was good. Now off to pack for my ride.
