9 day South Island trip to Bannockburn Bike week.

In late January I did 9 days in the South Island travelling to and attending Bike Week NZ at Bannockburn http://www.bikeweeknz.com/

On the way down I covered Molesworth Station, Hakataramea Pass and Danseys pass and on the return trip Black Forest Station and part of Clarence River Reserve.
While at Bike Week NZ we covered The Nevis, the Bannockburn back road to Clyde, Mount Difficulty, Bendigo gold town ruins, part of the Lake Onslow Road & The Dunstan Trail, The Serpentine road and church, Thomsons track, The Awakino Saddle, St Bathans and more.

I've put together a gallery of over 150 pics on that evil social networking site: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1&l=d3b909677d which as you follow the pics through provides a sort of Ride report. You don't have to be a member to see it.

Here's a few teaser pics

great photos (a little on the large side - you'd be excommunicated if you posted those on KB) but of course those of us who haven't been sucked into the moronic cesspit that is faecesbook can't see the rest of the photos.....
