|Day||Distance km||Elevation Gain m||Summary|
|1||85||1166||Got some miles in, feels good to get going|
|2||76||2145||Starting to get some ups and downs|
|3||59||1866||There are a lot of hills here|
|4||42||1466||I press the “give up” button but there is no bus, taxi or shortcut. Must keep spinning the legs.|
|5||71||1538||That’s it – I’ve had enough. But by the end of the day I am happy to have made it, get a shower and some food! Beautiful views, again.|
|6||59||2476||This is beyond a joke. Start to hope my knees give in. Relive.cc video|
|7||15||1099||The end is in sight. Between us and Pua is just one|
|8||27||415||After an afternoon off, get up early to watch sunrise, then set off down the other side. Another short and relatively easy day.|
Here’s a video (YouTube link) of a pished local man in the mountains on a scooter wanting us to stop / drink / speak / something
We met some other cyclists on the way up the hill from Bo Kluea
Camping at the top!
