Cycling Around the World Day 862: Westport – Lyell

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Feb - 19 - 2013

Distance: 64.51 km
Ride time: 3:17:10
Average: 19.7 km/h
Total: 19289 km

As I (still) had not finished the programming task I was working on, I spent the whole morning and afternoon at Westport library – only interrupted by a quick walk to the supermarket for lunch.

A beautiful thing about New Zealand in summer is the long days. Even if I didn’t leave Westport before 5 pm I was still able to make a 60 km cycling day out of it.

I thought there would be some hard climbing to do, but the road was only gently climbing as it was following the Buller River up into the mountains. So far New Zealand has not been nearly as hard tocycle as I would have expected from all the ‘warnings’ I had got before coming here.
