On the road

This will probably be the only post from the road for the next 48 hours as there is a fair bit of riding to be done in the next wee while.

I had quite a nice (nice and cool) ride down to Wellington until I hit rush hour traffic which soon had mine and the bike's temperatures rising. The ferry was also delayed getting into Picton as apparently there was another one having trouble docking. It was a nice flat sailing though and the sounds were as beautiful as ever.







So now I am hiding in the shade in Picton with plenty of time up my sleeve to get to Blenheim for the 6pm start. It is going to be hot work as temp is expected to hit 30 degrees again...



Right now I just can't wait to hook into the first 260km of the TT...
