I am gearing up to cycle unsupported the length of New Zealand beginning February 23th from Cape Reinga. This is an event, known as Tour Aotearoa, following 3000 km of cycle trails, tracks, paths and lanes, with just 30 days to reach Bluff.

All participants in the event have donated to a charity of our choice. Id love to raise some extra money while I ride for my chosen charity - the Wellington MS Society.

Wellington MS Society is one of the unsung heroes of our welfare system - doing great work every day to improve the lives of some of the nicest people you could wish to meet. Hoping this fundraising can help them along the way - please show your support in making this ride benefit this great charity. Thanks

1 week to go  16 February 2020

Just under a week to go before the start and fair to say there's a good mixture of excitement and anxiety. Huge thanks for all the generous donations - really quite humbling - thankyou. Spent a few days in Wellington with my bro last month and sat in at one of the MS Support group meetings - such a nice group of people and whatever little bit of help we can give to the Wellington MS society is fantastic.

Sorting final bits of gear this week and head north on Saturday. You can track me at:

Thanks again
