Is there the time to go back and travel a great section of road a second time or take a 100 km side trip?
Yeah, absolutely. For the last two years we’ve had a Brit guy off the Triumph List Alex Eggert come on one of our January tours. He’s not happy unless he rides the day’s route twice. He’d often clock up 400 miles in a day (hard to do in NZ – you’ll see why when you get here). I’d be half way to the day’s destination in the support van and Alex would zoom past heading in the opposite direction. He was riding back to do it all over again. Or he’d go to perverse lengths to find the longest route to the day’s destination.
