How about a repeat of last week? It delivered more climbing metres than I thought while simultaneously avoiding the Wall and the Summit. Starting at Ashburton station at 7am. Heading out Burwood and Mountain Highways. Coffee at Svaks. Around 100km and 1700m climbing, expect to be back in Ashburton before midday. Average speed expected about 25km/h. Please post if you wish to join.
Hi Phil, I’ll join in- sort of. I need to be back earlier than 12 so will leave 6.30ish and follow your route, except I will shorten it by not doing the loop Dixon’s /Fairydell/almost to Emerald – if that makes sense. So may or may not see you out there but will follow most of your route!
Looks like it will be a great day.
