I was in the bottom of the south last year at that time, mainly for the Brass Monkey Rally. It was -2 at 3:30pm on the Saturday and -11 overnight. Lots of snow and ice throughout the various Road Passes. You may get away with some areas but generally its a not the best time to ride. I would probably suggest top of the south island possibly but the main adventure roads like the Molesworth and Rainbow are closed due to winter anyway. Good Luck.
