Short 90km to the edge of the Canterbury Plains.
The route from Lake Tekapo to Geraldine allowed us to ride at a relatively high average speed today. The climb up Burkes Pass was relatively pleasant and after that it was practically all downhill until Fairilie. From there we followed the foothills on the edge of the Canterbury Plains. Although we had to cope with short climbs there again and again, we reached Geraldine after just over 4h. So fast we had never covered 95km (correctly it must be mentioned here that we were partly supported by a slight tailwind).
