12 days to go
After a busy day at work it was time to go home and finish my packing for my trip to Auckland. The bike had been packed and it was some last minute things that had to be thrown into the bike box before it was taped up ready to be transported. Not only was the bike going but anything associated with the bike and from a nutritional perspective so there was nuts, fruits, drink bottles and Gatorade not to mention a bike pump that needed to be included in the box.
I eventually made it to Auckland straight into the festive cheer with bottles of wine opened, beers being offered around and me thinking to myself that not drinking over this period was going to suck!
