They took their track bikes on holiday with them and circumnavigated the island and endured storms – is there no end to the coolness of this couple? Words by Frank:
I’m not sure why, maybe it was another spur of the moment brainstorm, but we decided to bring our single speed, direct drive bicycles with us. Rarotonga is the biggest island in the Cook islands, and has a ~35km sealed ring road around the entire island. On one of the days we decided to tour around the island, to get a more organic feel and view from the ground level. With a few photo stops and a drink stop we managed to circumnavigate the island in under two hours, at my notoriously unfit pace. We were also caught in numerous downpours, as one side of the island seemed to have a completely different weather system compared to the opposite side.
Much like Auckland, really.
