Spot on, it's at Little River,
Lots of great riding
How the emigration plans?
The pavement ended to my surprise after 50 km and turned to gravel. I had planned the ride on ride with gps and it looked like a decent highway....
I thought I would see how I go on the gravel, I had some sealant in my tool bag and a spare tubular as well.
The road wasn't great but I kept hoping it would get better, it didn't.... Gravel and 20% climbs on 23c tyres will test you, not to mention trying to go down the other side and not lose your $hit.
100km in and 50 km of gravel.
The bike was filthy and so was I...
This little dude was in bad shape as he had been run over, I was not game to help him though...
At km 150 I finally saw pavement again. I had actually ridden 100km of gravel and gotten a flat, how is that even possible? My ax-lightness 24 ULT wheels and Veleflex tyres preformed impressed me once again!
Back to the coast at km 240, and I turned left into a nast head wind...
278km of vast nature, this was my longest ride ever, and totally solo. I am a bit sore and tired today but still glowing with a buzz from the ride.

Nice photos Squashednuts. Those Wheelworks hoops look good on the Focus too!

Been here since the end of September and slowly settling in. The good weather is taking a fair bit of getting used to! Been exploring as muh as I can but not done much round Little River yet. Looks like I'll have to now!
@smashednuts. Great place, but now my wife wants to build a steel cantilevered, Philip Johnson-homage. Thanks a lot...
