s of Wakefield to Nelson, NZ
80 km (49.7 mi)

Had a very nice ride today and was in a really good mood. Spent about 3 hours this morning just working on the bike, drinking coffee. Had a bunch of spokes to fix and tires to change. Got all that sorted and got moving. It was a slight downhill gradient so the ride was quite fast. Took pictures of everything on the way in. Turns out the rest area I was looking for last night was just around the corner, oh well.

Ate lunch in Wakefield and then moved on. Got into Nelson and stopped on the sidewalk. A girl on a bike that I passed earlier came up and asked if I was looking for a backpackers. I said yeah, and she was staying at the one I was looking for. I followed her here to the Palace. Nice place, old victorian house. Got cleaned up and went out with people from the hostel to the pub.
