Day 15: Ashburton to Fairlie

Fairlie, New Zealand

At last, we leave the horrible Highway 1 and head into the foothills of the alps, through the pretty town of Geraldine and on to Fairlie.

Claud and I contemplate the hills ahead. There are some pretty testing climbs and, combined with headwinds, they make for tough cycling into and out of the aptly-named Beautiful Valley.

Fairlie is not really a tourist place and I have a very quiet night in a cabin in a deserted camper van site, watching a beautiful sunset over the distant mountains. Time for laundry again.

Distance today: 100Km, cumulative: 1778 Km, remaining: 503 Km
