The sun finally came out today and we actually had some blue sky too. Weather report for the Nevis Road wasn’t looking great, so we selected to have an easy short day.
Popped up to nearby Fraser dam for a quick look then back down again. Next up was Hawksburn Road. We did this road two years ago and distinctly remember some steep rocky bits and some heavily eroded parts on top, but someone has come along and fixed it since then and it was fairly smooth gravel all the way. Heaps of cyclists out on it too.
