Day 5 was the easiest, at only 27kms from Kurow to Duntroon. In comparison to the previous day it was not as eventful except for the Maori Rock art and the prevailing headwind.
The last day was Duntroon to Oamaru. It was a tough uphill climb to start with, followed by some lovely valleys with wonderful rock formations. The Fort Enfield Tavern was a welcome sight after days of carrying your own food. The A2O finish was a stones throw away, with a short ride to Oamaru.
Along the way, Sandy met and rode with some lovely people. Wherever he went, the people were so helpful and nothing was a problem. This made it easier for him, even though they did not know he was somewhat impaired in some areas. He had a lot of support from family, friends, hospital staff (Sarah, Scarlet and Janet) and Warren the pharmacist. All of them helping in one way or another to make sure there is no problems or stress.
