However, it did not take him long to find gravel.

Very nice countryside to get lost in.

There is always a mystery about what is just over the brow of the hill -
lucky it wasn't a Kenworth.

Not too far now before the sea views.

But, before the views, it's tucker time.

Then Roel decided it was time to display his puncture repairing technique,
ably assisted by JB.

Steve's happy : he has not lost any riders.

Roel's happy : he's getting his picture taken again.

And now everyone's happy : they have found the cafe at the Nikau Cave.

And, all too soon, they have to leave and head back to see if they can find the cars.
