That's best route for ease of travel and time BTW
Heading back home to Christchurch next week and need to try and sort out the fastest/easiest route to be taking. Every map I look at seems to give me a different story (AA's say go via Taupo, most others say it's longer).
I'll be travelling straight through, most likely on Sat to catch a (very) late ferry at about 2 in the morning, so assuming no problems (little paranoid, as I got a flat my last biggish trip and was stuck for quite a while) I should have no time issues, but:
- I need to have a gas station every 160kms or so (180 max), can get over 200kms commuting, but maintained high speeds eat the gas on my bike.
- I'd like to keep close to places where I can get tires fixed ect when possible. (I'll replace my patched tube before I leave, but still paranoid )?
So, suggestions guys?
Another thing, what breakdown services are avaible/recommended/not hugely expensive?
