……gallivanting around New Zealand and SE Asia

Goodbye New Zealand….Hello South East Asia

Our cycling journey in NZ was completed in 2,583 miles. We have been in NZ for 103 days, and 66 of those days were spent cycling and the other 37 were spent tramping, kayaking, sight seeing but mostly eating and resting of the legs and bums. Some boring cycling stats, our average daily mileage was 39.1 miles and our longest cycling day was 65 miles. Highest hill climbed was 1037 metres and fastest downhill was 37.87 miles per an hour!

….the proof

Proof of the big miles!

For our last couple of weeks spent in NZ, we cycled from Ocean to Alps (Mount Cook), tramped around Mount Cook, Lake Tekapo and cycled into Christchurch via Mount Hutt. Again we have been incredibly fortunate with kind kiwis who have helped us with cleaning, packing and organising for next part of the adventure. Next stop Singapore!
