In the afternoon, I passed mile upon mile of fruit farms, all with a roadside store selling cherries, peaches, nectarines, strawberries, etc. I started to fancy a fruit snack so stopped in for a snack of most delicious apricots I have ever tasted.
The weather was near-perfect all day - Cool enough to need jacket and gloves while riding but warm enough to want to remove them when stopped. Only in the last 25Km as I approached the Catlins coast, a cold, damp wind started up and I fumbled to close the vents on my jacket as I was riding.
