Just re-assembled the trike. The dynamo and/or both of the lights fed by the dynamo aren't working, one of the rear flashing lights isn't working with fresh batteries, and the computer mounting is also busted. Oh, and my tool pouch has some largeish holes in it as well as a broken zip. I should probably get a new flag as well.
I should be able to get to work and back (in daylight anyway) but some serious work is required before everything is fully operational again.
( She's breaking up Captain! I cannae hold her together much longer... )
( But what about the ride? There was a ride today right? )
Not quite sure what the options are tomorrow but it is a fair way to Haast. I am going to make an attempt at the Haast Pass though.
A couple of enjoyable but not long rides, a lot of driving time, and a pleasant cruise on Milford Sound.
( Lots of pretty scenery though... )
Tomorrow the boat will return to Milford and we'll be off to Te Anau for a couple of nights. We should be able to get some decent rides in tomorrow.
The route may be the same but the ride can be very different.
( Over the Crown Ranges I go... )
On Tuesday we'll be heading towards Milford Sound and again limitations on geography will create very similar rides
In which I discover that tarmac with a headwind is preferable to gravel with a tail wind
( But at least the great views made up for it... )
Usually I try to insert a witty post cut comment here but I'm drawing a blank tonight.
( And we're on again... )
Oh, and apparently the hills eating my flags was seen as a challenge. Adventure South have provided a replacement flag, clipped it to the pole, and supplied three spares. :)
