Today is still sunny and It’s a pleasure. Careful, there is many pictures because every places were wonderful so it was difficult to limit the picture’s number. Now, I have more work to do :-)
Has I remarked yesterday, there is a cycle rail and Josiane told me about it but I think I missed a part already.
No car and a path just for me, I like that :-)
This path it’s an old railway and it’s called river trail. We know why…
There is several fence like this to get the animals away but with the bike I smash the door directly, vlan!
the lake side or use to be a lake …
The road is quite far and it’s nice :-)
The ground looks dry but it’s covered by the water… Is it possible? Maybe this place was dry for a while before.
Fouaaa! So straight, so flat, but good warm up for the next part.
I like this picture and the view. Doesn’t looks like New Zealand at all. That’s why it’s my picture of the day :-)
I’m arriving in the sound. I will have to go up hill soon, I’m afroad.
A little break in a DOC’s place. Some chicken seam interested by my chocolate peanuts bar.
A bit in the bush, yes it’s nice too :-)
No transitions, I passed the small town called “Little River” and I’m now on the top (476m exactly) after a 50min ride, Fiou! That’s was easier than I expected but I’m happy to have reached the top!
Frenchs are never far away.
The over side toward Akaroa harbour. There is two road from here : one goes down and turn around the water, the other on, the tourist drive, pass by the summit. I’ll take the summit :-)
Roooh! I found my lunch break place :-)
Hey! What are you doing up there? Get lost? Come on I’m hungry!
Really nice view to eat :-)
Pigeon bay, mouarf!
Whouaaa, I’m going on the right for sure :-)
The view is wonderful!

Okay, Akaroa by the submit fits me :-) 5km more but certainly better view!
I’m turning all around. There is a target, the big boat.
And I would like to sleep here this night, right on the middle of the picture on a kind of peninsula but I don’t know if it’s possible. I will see.
Whouaa, good place for climbing :-) and there is climbers.
Yes here :-)
A picture is not enough to show how is the landscape here.
The same but 120° only.
Yes it’s me :-)
All around I said. Soon I will have a huge downhill haha :-)
The downhill is just behind me now but before a break front of the pacific ocean :-) shuuut…
Akaroa is down there.
Here I am. The descent was really cool. I love disc brake because I can stop if I want haha :-) yes yes, really! ;-)
This small town is nice but…
Many things are write in French. Why?
This park is situated just front of the harbour.
Rah, the cones… Touchy orange color.
I was up there.
I asked the price for one night, one person in a dorm : 32$ oups! Is there any bridge here? For free?
That’s a French tourism place, I’m sure now.
With buses and more but I like.
“Rue Lavaud” OK…
Cool boat, I will have one with 2 mountain bikes and trailers :-)
That’s a good place…
To eat sugar! Hmmm!
haha, I’m in France in fact :-) people around speak French as well.
“La boucherie du village” si si :-)
“Le belle villa” ah bein Ouai c’est sûr. He ho, English please…
Old woody house.
I like the colours.
Really cute and ready for tourist :-)
Oh, a light house, looks more quiet there.
Take a boat to come back? Never!
From the lighthouse.
Yes it is.
And better in live :-)
View onto a restaurant.
Thank you Chinese man :-)
clouds, the come BACK! NOOOOOO!
Some shops, I don’t want to see the prices … I feel already pain to the a**.
Ah, the boat is gone.
They are getting bigger! Where is my bridge?!
I’m eating and it’s getting dark, almost the time to find a free place.
Finally the could seam to stay on there spot. It’s better like this. OK, let’s move I have an idea where I should go. Good night!
