I did a solo late winter/ early spring ride for 16 days through the North and South Islands. Initially I was apprehensive of how I would fare alone but the PMT crew's high standards of organization and planning made this a ride I'll remember. Their itinerary plotted long rides through magnificent scenery while still allowing time to rest and experience attractions along the way and also at day's end. Destinations alternated between rural to urban, meandering over the island and thus leaving no chance for boredom to set in and always offering new experiences. Roads from coastal to alpine were always exciting and scenic, more beautiful than online photos can do justice to.
