H JT,

Yes it starts/finishes in Portland.

It was on a website that was removed from the www after the webmaster died. It was a route sheet ( i.e a list of instructions like after 1Km turn left) but we have ridden it a plotted it on GPS to make it easier.

I still need to finish the last section from Nelson, but really this is easy to do. Just keep the sun on your back in the afternoon/ head East using any track you can find and stop before you hit the ocean.

It is still very wet on the railway track so I suggest you detour via other roads on the first part of section A
