The Coastal Highway and Hopkins (7th Feb)

The next morning we found the pain in Nathan’s stomach had gone, but now he was having to run to the toilet every few minutes. We decided to head back in two groups: he would ride as fast as he needed to, stop whenever he had to, and just get back to Hopkins. Nick would go slower, and wait for Karen and I. The road back was much more enjoyable. Not having such a short time to do it in we could ride slower, avoid bumps, and stop for a few photos along the road. We made it back early afternoon, dropped the bikes off with Emma (after filling up, approx. 210kms), and chatted about the trip with her (while Nathan kept running to her toilet). We then went across the road, had lunch, then headed to the rooms we had booked for the night.

Nathan decided to stay in the room for the evening, but Nick, Karen and I went to find a quiet restaurant (not so easy on a Friday night, when local music is played everywhere), and then headed back to the rooms.
