The bus tour to Hokitika took about 3, 5 hours and the road was outstandingly beautiful. It is seldom you get to experience such beautiful landscapes.
In Hokitika, I stay two nights at Mountain Jade and Backpackers hostel.
I got the bike fixed, new rear tire and three new inner tubes and moreover he adjusted the rear wheel spokes
Hokitika is an small but very Cozy town and You can find anything you need.
Hokitikas beach only five minutes walk from the clocktower is huge. But this season no bathing guests but dog owners exercise their dogs at the beach and they seems to love it.
Lots of dead branches and trees that flowed ashore lying on the beach. Some have made artwork from them.
In Hokitika there are also many shops and galleries selling artwork and hadicraft done by the Maorier.
Next morning I was on the road again with my bicycle, now towards Westport by the West Coast.
