Cheviot's beautiful scenic roads are now very quiet. Cheviot to Kaikoura, SH1 is now open, however this doesn't take away from the lovely quiet roads as Cook Strait traffic is still absent.
There is a silver lining - if you are a cyclist!
Kilometres of beautiful, scenic road are open for biking business - no trucks, no campervans, and very few cars! What you will find is loads of magnificent scenery, dramatic coastline and a small town with a plethora of cafes to imbibe your favourite brew!
