Auckland to Wellington 2014
Anyone done this ride before? I have started planning this with a couple friends and curious if anyone has pointers for pre-planning. Yeh, a long way to go, but good to get a soft date in place.
Looking at February or March over 10 days if necessary. But hear Feb is super hot/humid. Hoping my cousin who lives out there will drive a support van. Or we are looking non-supported.
I currently ride a Specialized Allez Elite but was thinking of upgrading to carbon. I know that carbon is probably not the best for a 500 mile ride, but would the Allez but okay for it or should I buy a cheap steel frame too?
Anyway, chime in if you've done this ride or pieces of it and have any advice.
