Day 162, Tuesday 30 January 2018.
A very pleasant ride through the southern part of the Hunua Ranges with Auckland Ulysses today, finishing up at the Native Tree Cafe in Mangatarata for lunch.
The temperature has been around 30°C for the last few days. It feels good to be out riding so long as we can keep moving, but as soon as we stop the body armour traps the heat and we swelter.
Distance travelled: 215 km. Total distance so far: 21,545 km
