September 1, 2009: More Bad Weather

Methven, New Zealand – Today we got up at 5:30am to find out that high winds and lightening closed the mountains. We had planned to go to another mountain two hours away but that was shut down as well. Nothing opened up for the rest of the day.

Instead we drove into Christchurch (1.5 hours away) and saw a movie and had sushi. While the nature of the town of Methven is spectacular, its size limited our activities, especially since it was cold and dreary outside. It was nice to be in a big city like Christchurch, even for just a few hours.

Two more training days and then going home. Hopefully the weather will be favorable to us and we can actually ride.
