Day 2: Havelock to Nelson the hard way

Distance Travelled: 53 km

Time: 4 hours, 40 minutes

Travel modalities included bicycling and more walking than I'm willing to admit.

The day began with the realization that I'd lost my sunglasses. Fortunately, it wasn't very sunny so I didn't need them.
My first time riding any appreciable distance on gravel. I thought it would all be like this: smooth, well maintained, flat. I guess I wasn't expecting flat.
I don't want to say I decided to start walking here, because it was the road that decided for me.The photo does not adequately demonstrate how steep it is. 
Some incredible beauty along the way.

Riding along what I think is the Pelorus river was stunning, but it doesn't look as pretty in the photo.

Relive video.
