Wow they did 182 ks today. Like yesterday quite a lot on gravel roads but today was a lovely fine day. When they got to Masterton they couldn’t find any accommodation so they decided to push on to Featherston. Fetherston is 1480 kms from the cape. So in about 20 ks they will be half way!!!
Plan tomorrow is to arrive in Wellington and get an afternoon ferry.
Here’s a comment and photo from Jeremy
Thought you might like a non cycling photo today, rode 182km from Palmerston north and now staying at the very cool Featherstone hotel circa 1904 with a steam punk inspired restoration…..check out the plumbing on this loo; off to Wellington tomorrow.
