Early start but daqm sore body. My arse kills and a very tender hamstring. Im gunna have to get a new bike seat ASAP. Ive desided on a short day today to try and recover. i got about 50k then got to Dargaville then had to stop at backpacks were sore as. I got the whole backpackers to me self and it was a nice place as well. The owner told me of a german couple who went up the west coast then cam back 2 days later. They just couldnt do all the hills and they were a fit couple. They waited at a train station for 4 hours then worked out that the train station no longer works. But the bottom line, they couldnt do it. This coast is gunna be interestiong. Im gunna be up for big day tomorrow.
