The 'Tour of Southland' covers 1100km made up of over 9 stages and run for 6 days(3rd to 8th November).

Here is a link to the official homepage of the 'Tour of Southland' .

 

 

 

 

The event page begins with a look at the Stage 9 which is the last day.

The weather on this day was a big contrast to that of 3 days earlier.

It would be a bike day for me also.
