Just wondering if anybody here has done the mountain to sea trialhttp://nzbybike.com/mountain-to-sea-trail/
I am going to do (part of) it in March 2012. Will load up with camping gear and do as much of it as possible in 5 days. Aiming to keep the luggage at under 12kg over four panniers. Still not sure on whether to deck out my Surly Cross Check with gears. Currently thinking of riding it single speed, don't mind a little bit of pain, but not sure if this will turn into a world of hurt as I cannot find the altitude profile for the trail anywhere.
So anybody with experience of the trail or does anybody know where I can find the profile?
