We managed to get the Zoe the 611km from Kerikeri to New Plymouth without any battery charging crisis. My fears of being “ICED” (internal combustion vehicles parked on a EV charging space) proved to be unfounded (thank you all) and all our planned charging locations were available upon arrival.
We got to spend a little time wandering around a heartland town that we would normally blaze through and arrived in our destination a little more relaxed than usual.
Zoe was laden with our two bikes and a little gear but we did not notice any significant performance issues.
So far so good.
We had a light warm-up on the bikes today and have got the gear ready to load onto the F19s in the morning.
Unusually, for us, the long range forecast is looking promising but we won’t get to carried away on the strength of a weather forecast. 24hours is a looong time on the West Coast.
I have left the laptop at home in the hope of not tempting fate. Maybe I will remain seated during the entire ride this time.
Tune in for updates on our ride around Mount Taranaki.
