I’m almost out of steam as I climb the last hill to my destination, feeling every stroke in my aching calf muscles. After pitching my tent, I went to discover that Hot Water Beach is aptly named; because if you dig a hole in the sand, it fills up with thermally-heated water. Ahh, soaking in a thermal pool, listening to the ocean waves, and watching the sunset fade way - what an amazing reward for my efforts, as I pedaled like a champ over the mountains today.

In this second chapter, I will be cycling around the Coromandel Peninsula to explore its legendary thermal coastline, and hope I can stay on the left side of the road. After a grueling mountain pass, I soaked in the thermal pools at Hot Water Beach, visited epic rock formations at Cathedral Cove, and then pedaled south to a picturesque campsite along the Tairua River. Taking a break from the saddle, I'll explore an old gold mine with iridescent green glow-worms.
