Molesworth Road New Zealand Advice / Blenheim to Hammer Springs to Nelson

Hoping for some advice on cycling the Molesworth Road alone as my cycling partner doesn't want to do it. Idea is to cycle from Blenheim via Molesworth Road to Hammer Springs then back up to Nelson via St Arnaud.
Is this route possible? And rough estimate of how long it would take?
I would be keen to cycle with other tourers who are planning to do the route in next few days or so.
Thanks guys and girls! :)

I must watch this thread.

Nearly 15 years ago we too did this route and it was one of the most memorable rides while there.
Great camping and scenery with little traffic.

There was a bridge that was swept away and we had to fiord the ice cold river up to our mid thighs.
I hope the bridge is back in order

Good luck
