GSB 2014 Day 4 Photos

An easier day for most, well for those that managed to stay on track (there is no left turn on Hawksburn Road?).

The Lake Wakatipu crossing proved to be a leveller with the pack compressing into the Queenstown-Mossburn leg and the Garston pub having a busy day with those staying and many more passing by to higher accommodation.

Late evening and the Historic Ski Hut above Garsten (998m) become a mecca for tired cyclists. Can recall an article that listed 10 things for every mountain biker should have on their bucket list. Number 5 is sleep with your bike. I know 17 people who have just taken that one a bit too literal.

And the road ahead!

Ken Scott keeping his feet dry (for now, there are 50+ crossings in the Nevis)

Nathan smiling (he's at the bottom of the hill and hasn't looked up yet!)

Wendy hasn't read the sign: Steep sections and extreme weather conditions

Party anyone?
