This was one of the two great campsites logged along the way


Danseys Pass was closed so images of me sitting in front of a fire with a nice warm meal and a brewskie at Danseys Pass Hotel quickly disappeared. With dark only half an hour away I decided to grab a cabin at Danseys Pass Holiday Park

Leg #2 Danseys Pass to Gore

The next morning it was up early and on the bike. It was cold; very cold. The bike temperature gauges on the left of the dash don't go below 0 but the Striker unit let me know I was kicking the day's riding off in -1 temperatures


The first hour of riding was pretty cold in the lower valleys but up on the ridge lines it was nice to soak up some early morning sun as the day started to warm up

This was the weekend of the Brass Monkey so there were oodles of bikes on the road




I watched a continual flow of bikes pour through the Ranfurly service station as I stopped in at the Ewes & Moo Cafe for a coffee and bite to eat

Stopping to take photos of SH65 the local cops took the opportunity to pull in behind me and see what I was up to. Running me through the computer confirmed I was not a criminal on the run and we had a bit of a chinwag as the cop on the left was also a keen rider




Stopping in at Alex for a bite to eat. I needn't have ordered food, there was enough food on the floor to feed 10 people :/

Lunch and Looksee



The Moth was the cafe for Mother's Day lunch which is tied in with an aviation museum where local aircraft engineers restore old places. Quite interesting to see all the old planes brought back to their former state

Leg #3 - Gore back to base

The plan was to head north again as I had other GPS logging to do further north so it was back on the bike and off again. The weather looked a little scratchy out east but kept at bay for a great day of riding








Pulling over to let a mob of sheep and a curious dog through

The bridge over Lake Mahinerangi

A fuel up at the Wobbly Goat Cafe


A lightning strike in Karamea blew up a computer with photos of the Moeraki Boulders so I popped in to grab some more for the website

A yummy feed to wind up the days riding


The friendly shop cat lazing about on the floor


Ocean View Motels, basic but pleasant and low priced accommodation if you can handle trains going by at all hours of the night and morning


Morning views from the motel
