And the GSB heats up

The GSB 2016 is starting to heat up! And not just the temperature, as riders find their second wind and a taste of the finish now they are heading north in the direction of Tekapo.

7 + 20 = 27, 7 degrees yesterday on the Old Man Range to 27 at the lake today
Approaching Lake Mahinerangi crossing

The beach looks tempting!
The windmills on the Lammerlaw weren't generating much electricity today

Looking fresh, I wonder why? Read their txt below

Aliesha trying to convince the horse to take her to Tekapo

Mosgiel restock, Wendy takes some fresh cream donuts for a ride!

And fresh milk, hope they get consumed quickly in this heat ;-)

Looks like some tactics are starting to creep in. Not sure about sleeping in a railway tunnel and the vagrancy in the park to get ahead.

Ian and wendy are I  mosgiel.  We enjoyed lake mahinerangi.  The "undulating" route was more like never ending hills. The cafe at outram was superb
