Nice photos – you;ve had a reasonable run of weather as well.Good call missing the Wgtn-PN section although the only bit of motorway (just for info like) is the small 3K stretch into Wgtn city. You avoid it by riding through Thorndon Quay and out the old Hutt Rd then up the Ngauranga Gorge – by the top of that you’ll be puffing like a good ‘un , then hop through J’Ville and down Middleton Rd then drop back onto the main rd there. But you could ride the whole lot if you wanted. I wouldn;t though because its a sucky section of road. Enjoy the upper nth island.
