I stayed in Christchurch for a little bit mor than a week. Four days after I landed on Christchurchs airport I got my tent back from Bio Security Authority company and now I allowed to use it everywhere on the island.
I also took a bicycle tour down to Lyttleton and the coast road back via Sumner beach.
It was a little bit tough to climb over the mountain but the tunnelroad allowed not bicycles.
The next few days I fixed the bike, new front and rear lights and brake blocks.
There are plenty of good and well-sorted bicycle shops in Christchurch.
Christchurch is an town with almost everything but without the big city’s stress.
The bike paths are well marked with green fields or cycle pictograms on the road lanes
On April 8, I left Kiwi House Hostel och heading south towards Lake Tekapo and Lake Pukaki. I have calculated with four cycle days.
The first night after Christchurch I pitch up my tent close to village Rakaia at an halting place, which there is plenty of in New Zealand.
No problems at all to find places to camp Green spot everywhere.
