It was a tuff day, blenheim to hanmer, jonty got some sun so had rest for an hour as we had made the 5pm cut off to molesworth by 2 hours averaging 21kmh. It was stinking hot but we had a lovely cool tail wind. Pretty sure we will take it a bit easier tomorrow. Sleepimg out tonight in bivvy sacks. Bikes all going well and bodies too. No problems. Photo is of jonty and alex at the top of a nasty hill.
