Default Sweet As, Bro!!... NZ South Island 2016

Holy Schmoly!! ...what a ripsnorter this turned out.




One hell of a rollercoaster which left nothing untouched, kept the bellies hurting with laughter, the throats well oiled, the sandfly-bites itching, the bikes groaning under a daily dust-storm and the punters gasping for mercy by 4pm ever afternoon, begging for showers and beds.
From memory, only 2 nights went beyond 9pm...but that's sorta flexible.
The memory, that is....or call it hazy?


A frantic pace over 2 weeks brought along heat, bone-chilling cold, rain to sink Noah's Arc, steep and rocky tracks to scare the shit out of everyone, fabulous local brews, a trifecta of blown-over bikes+riders and home-cooking nights in camp-kitchens and Backpackers that shit all over MKR

It spawned the legends of KILLSWITCH and SIDEWINDER...and all the other bits.

What a crew.... what a ride!!!

Sweet as, bro!! Shit yeah!!

Yo, all back, all fine. Still doesn't feel right, though....

But it'll be a while until all the pics are collected + sorted.
Some of the crew are either in the Philippines or on the boat to Tassie by now...."recuperation-breaks" was the term I heard.
