State Highway 79, Geraldine to Fairlie

Hi all, this is a drive I used to do on my motorbike when living in Timaru, and now travel it regularly on my way to Wanaka from Christchurch. It has some awesome corners, with the best bit being Pusey Gorge just before the hilltop, not far from Fairlie. The map link is http://maps.google.co.nz/maps?f=q&sourc ... =UTF8&z=12 The main things to watch out for are over-zealous members of the constabulary, and camper vans on the wrong side of the road! :shock: Pusey Gorge is worth a couple of runs if the traffic is ok. ;)
