Finally I worked out that my seat was too low — both on my MTB on the Timber Trail, and now my bikepacking bike; most unusual, I long ago learnt the lesson of correct seat height.
I sorted that out, but found I had to take it a bit slower and favour my left knee. Having looked forward to the company, it was a little disheartening to find myself having to take things a bit slower and solo — but it was to be a big day, so no point in blowing up early on. I was hopeful I could still manage km that day, through a pretty remote area.

A couple of randonneursChris and Phil they were following a very similar route for Easter, just with fewer gravel and off-road sectionscaught up to me and chatted a bit as we rolled on smooth gravel towards Murupara. Over ninety kilometres in four and a half hours was a bit beyond my usual pace, so I was pleased to reach Murupara and refuel.
The others were just finishing up a big meal, so I ordered and waited for mine as they carried on towards Waikaremoana. Not bad for second breakfast and fifteen dollars. I was looking forward to riding the Waikaremoana road again, two years since the last trip through — this time in the opposite direction over two, not one, days.
This place looked pretty much the same. The bottom two lines here being the important one as I left the plateau and headed for the hills and native bush. Occasionally it would get warm on what was a wonderful day for riding: For the middle of a long weekend, there was little traffic and I found I could get up the hills OK — albeit in easier gears than I normally would, and therefore a bit slower.
Keeping stops to a minimum it was a little while before Chris and Phil caught me again. Chris and I groveled up the first notable climb together, Phil always slightly ahead. I lost them as they sped off on the descents. Through Ruatahuna I passed them as they stopped for water; I made my way up the biggest climb of the day steadily. There was a fair bit of bush around Huzzah!
Still trying not to stop too much for photos, there are few. A big plummet to the lake ensued.
Not to mention nice give the legs a bit of a break. I think the highlight was passing a slow campervan on the outside of a bend. It was windy up there. Panekire Bluffs across Waikaremoana Spot the cyclist. They must have been there a while, as at ten to six they were waiting at the top of the road down to the store to let me know it would stay open for me and I should stock up as it was some time to the next resupply point.
The bubbly storekeeper was only too happy to help and I stocked up on Maketu pies, tuna, bier sticks and jerky — much of that I was very happy to have bought over the next thirty-six hours.
That just left forty kilometres of undulating valley floor riding in the dark to find the others in Frasertown. Goodness knows how much later I was, but I found the camping spot and settled in for what would prove to be a sleepless night for all.
While not overly pleased with a sore knee and tired legs, I was still pleased with getting through a km day with plenty of climbing and learning how to manage the pain.
That I could hardly walk when off the bike was a different story. The consensus was none of us slept that night, a mixture of unceasing dog barking, and either of, mutually exclusive, howling wind or mosquito attacks.
The others left before five, but I dithered a little.

By the time I departed, stopped to put on rain trousers and promptly remove them when the heavy shower passed, it was half-five. With the clocks going back, the day dawned soon — but the layer of cloud kept things gloomy. Through rural scenes it was mostly valley floor riding with a couple of climbs to Tiniroto. The highlight of the morning was a lively conversation with a young farming family riding together on a quad bike alongside the road between house and shed — the parents friendly and interested in where I was going, the kids excited apparently by a crazy loaded cyclist.
The others left, as I arrived to settle into scrambled eggs, a big pot rather a milk jug, until the pot was found of tea and stash some lunch to go.
