Many hills climbed with many beautiful landscapes as our reward. This episode is filled with stunning scenery as we got the drone out to capture some of New Zealand's most beautiful lakes. We ride along the deserted Tekapo canal road to Lake Pukaki with bright blue water and orange skies as the sun sets over the mountains.
Summer forgot to record our ride from Lake Tekapo to Lake Pukaki so we just have the first half of our 90km day on relive.
Episode 3 - Bicycle Touring New Zealand - South Island
The morning started with a challenging little climb but the landscape made it all worth it. We were so excited to meet our first bicycle tourists who were all lovely and gave us great advice. We ended our day setting up camp with the sun going down and sharing dinner with a lovely French couple.
Episode 2 - Bicycle Touring New Zealand - The Perfect Start
We had restless sleep on the flight into Christchurch but we had a couple of days to recover as we stayed with Summer's brother and his fiance. We put our bikes together hung out with the family and then headed off on our journey.
After 1 year in Melbourne researching and planning for our big bicycle tour the waiting was finally over. The final packing of our gear and bikes had arrived and it was time to say our goodbyes to friends and family. We headed to the airport exited and nervous for our new adventure on the road.
