Fundraising for Wellington Womens Refuge
I am biking from Bluff to Picton in February – yes, all 1410km of it! And I want to make it useful for someone.
Help women and children living in fear by sponsoring me and supporting Wellington Women’s Refuge
A change of scenery 8 January 2022
Warren, my husband, and I are staying the weekend in Paeroa, en route to the Coromandel and the perfect kicking off point for the Karangahake Gorge - Waihi section of the Hauraki Rail Trail. This trail has the outstanding advantage of being almost totally flat, much appreciated on another sweltering day. The bushy trail beside the river was the best place to be, with waterfalls to admire, a cool 1100m long tunnel and a heritage train ride back to Waikino, part way along the route. Not a huge ride but good to keep in practice for the Big One.
Hi Joan, thank you for your generous donation and positivity - I'll try to key into that on my journey!
Hi Celia, thanks for your kind donation and confidence in my ability. I'll try to remember that as I puff along!
Dear Jenny and Max, so kind of you to support me and WWF. Many thanks, Lynne.
Hi Phil, many thanks for your donation; I'm impressed by people's generosity to WWF. Warren and I did 40km of the Hauraki Plains bike track today, from Thames towards Miranda. Lots of white faced herons, sun and wind!
Gosh, this is more like a trip down memory lane than preparation for a fundraising bike trip! Really appreciate your support, thanks.
