Fundraising for New Zealand Multiple Sclerosis Research Trust


Margot and her trike are my motivation to bike the Tour Aotearoa starting at Cape Reinga and heading south. Not sure how far I’ll get but I made my first goal - Auckland (400k) in 5 days and I’m loving it.

Margot lived with MS for about 30years. This was not easy for her but Margot enjoyed life to the fullest, was more adventurous than most, full of laughter and fun. When she couldn’t get around very well anymore she got a bike (trike) and off she went. Every new year we’d toast to the next year and a cure for MS. I miss our birthday parties, the laughs, the adventures, the friendship.

Sadly Margot didn’t get her cure but let’s help her dream happen.

Please donate to the important work of the New Zealand Multiple Sclerosis Research Trust. Keep giving and I’ll keep biking. Next goal is Taumaranui, then Wellington. If the South Island weather isn’t too horrendous and I haven’t thrown my bike into a ditch and sat down and had a cry maybe eventually on to Bluff. 🚴🏻‍♂️🚴🏻‍♂️ 🚴🏻‍♂️ (3000km)

Made it 🚴🏻‍♂️🚴🏻‍♂️  6 April 2024

3080km over 35 days (32 cycling plus 3 rest days) and I’ve made it from Cape Reinga to Bluff on my 🚴🏻‍♂️🚴🏻‍♂️. Whooohoooo!

Thank you for your donations and encouragement along the way. All I did was sit on my butt and move my legs #buttbutter #knees #iboprufen #absoluteblast

Margot and other people who live with MS are who deserve your admiration. For 30 years Margot lived with MS and lived her life to the fullest, with love, laughter, hope and bravery. Sadly, she also endured loss of independence, pain and suffering. Life can be so unfair.

Let’s help find the cure she always wanted.
