Leaving Christchurch

Day 1: Riccarton to Rakaia Gorge

So I left Christchurch in the rain. At least I did not need any sunscreen or sandfly-repellent… It also didn’t take long (just past Yaldhurst) before I found the parting gift the roads of Christchurch had left in my tire and was forced to change it. But while I did, the rain stopped, and the rest of the trip wasn’t to bad. I knew to expect boring roads, and boring roads I got, straight and gently rising. The Highlight of the day was probably the „Famous Pie“ in Horotata. After a 86 km ride I reached Rakaia Gorge and my campsite for the night.
