Farkle my Ride

One of the members here runs a great web site called Farkle My Ride and asked if I could do a ride report from my recent 4000km ride around NZ which I posted in a thread here. Here is the link and think he has done a great job of putting it all together on his site

Hey Kiwi,

Very entertaining story and spectacular photos. Nice to pictures of good food as well as bikes and guys in riding gear.

Middle Earth is certainly on my bucket list. Only hope to get there before I'm put in the bucket.

This write-up makes me envious! I am from Malaysia. Was in South Island on a 2 week tour in December 2012. We rented a car for 4 of us in a family. Covered similar areas, South Island is breathtakingly beauttiful and mostly unspoilt. We throughly enjoyed the entire trip. Had a wonderful time. Would have loved to have ridden on a bike on many parts of that trip!

It is nice living in God's backyard here in middle earth, At least you know to drive on the left, what really freaks me out is tourist in cars/vans that come from driving on right hand side and forget what country they in.

Kiwi,

The first time in a roundabout driving on the left hand side of the road was more of a mind bender than a rubics cube. "Look right, think left, look right, think left" was our mantra.
