Day 35 Notes

We left Lake Ohau today bound for Omarama. Todays cycle started with a 300m climb up to Tarnbrae High Point of 904m above sea level. This was Rachel’s first Grade 3 climb and it is not that easy even with very favourable winds. It was hard work getting to the top. The views from the top are great, but the descent down to the other side was simply awesome, the track is in good condition so you can open up and have fun. Rachel had me in laughs as she clearly demonstrated the advantages of not having clipless pedals. On the way to Omarama we took a detour to the Clay Cliffs, this little detour is well worth it as you can get up and close to the cliffs.
