Day 25 Notes

It was back to the wet coast today, I reckon it would be drier if I was swimming.  The West Coast Wilderness Trail continued to impress between Hokitika and Ross. I did a Golf Course, Old timber workings, a swamp, more forest and a nice long gravel road.  The ride started okay with a little drizzle but started to become more persistent when coming in towards Ross. After Ross it was wet wet all the way down to the bottom Mt Hercules.  I was soaked.  But surprise! Whataroa has turned on the sunshine for our stay overnight. Weather looking good for tomorrow. 110Km today then will do 130Km tomorrow.
