Day 14 – Tonganiro to Whakapapa 23km

Yay! A short day on the bike.

We were greeted with some stellar riding weather. Cool, clear and not a breath of wind. We said our good byes to Bill who will ride a day ahead to spend extra time with relatives.

The ride today was entirely up hill but was a complete pleasure in the excellent conditions. Excellent views of the mountains including the “Mount Doom” from Lord of the Rings.

We made decent enough time and got in to the alpine Whakapapa and set up the tents, did some washing and had lunch.

Then a perusal of the info centre and then off on a short walk to Taranaki Falls.
