Tackling the Dyers Pass

 The weather was beautiful again and I headed straight to the hills around Christchurch, on my new bike.

These are llamas, I guess. Somewhere along the Hoon Hay Valley road.

On Worsleys Road.

My nice blue cycle, secondhand from Around Again Cycles. Here I went back, as I didn't want to go offroad alone without mobile coverage.

View from Victoria Park

It was a hell of a climb to Dyers Pass, but I made it! As a reward I got this beautiful sight into the Lyttelton Harbour. Next time I will take another (shorter) route and go all way down to Governors Bay.

396 330 metres above sea level. Higher than anywhere in The Netherlands! And this is just the beginning...


  1. Those llamas are actually alpacas. I got confused about those too when I was Down under.

  2. Oh, thanks! I will remember this when I see those llamas again, Alpacas, I mean of course. Greetz!
