Today, I begin my journey riding the remote Rainbow Road. I will mountain bike from the Rainbow Ski Area near St. Arnaud to Hanmer Springs. There is no cell coverage on this 70 mile backcountry trail. I am not sure how long it will take me, as I plan to fly fish the Wairau River along the way. So it may be a few days until my next update. Until then, I will be bikepacking, fly fishing, eating locusts and wild honey (more like natural peanut butter and honey from the honey factory I toured yesterday), and living the life of adventure and exploration… See you in a few!
