A very good friend of mine who also happens to be a keen and outrageously fit cyclist AND a very entertaining writer posted this (true) story of a trip he did one day out to Darfield and beyond by bike so he could watch a friend jump off the top of Mt Torlesse.
Have a read! Go on – it’s very entertaining particularly if you don’t think too hard about attempting such a trip yourself.
Me? I reckon it would be nicer as a 2, or even 3 day trip … It’s also good to remember that there are some great tarsealed backroads out there on the plains that make for quite pleasant riding if the mood takes you.
