Another brilliant morning for the Great Southern Brevet!

Another brilliant morning in Tekapo. A few showers overnight and the 'gentle' nor'wester to keep riders honest to the end. Pascal and Dean complete the loop.

Pascal and Dean arrive to a rapturous welcome. Matt Hughes was the only one clapping so does that still qualify as rapturous? — at Church Of The Good Shepherd.

Dean just can't part with his bike after 930kms — at Church Of The Good Shepherd.

Not that we would advocate you ride one of these 1000kms through the mountains.... but a vintage early 90's Giant hard-tail with v-brakes. And this is it's second complete Great Southern Brevet!!

Pascal explains how much more exciting it is descending off the Cainmuir Range with just v-brakes to slow you down! — with Michael Hoogeveen, Andrew Scott and Matt Hughes at Church Of The Good Shepherd.
