Some of you may well recall the cycling and triathlon fundraising initiatives I’ve done in the past to raise money for worthy causes and I’m about to take on my biggest challenge to date – cycling the entire length of New Zealand, from north to south, and covering a total of 3,100 kms!

Only this time, I will not be taking on the challenge alone and will be joined by my plucky wife, Karla, as we set out to soak up the natural beauty of the country and raise funds for the  folk who have suffered debilitating and life-changing spinal injuries or similar congenital conditions. Few, if any, of us stop to consider the incredible frustrations and realities of what living a life with these limitations must be like, and the ongoing impact it has for them and their families.

If you are keen and able to contribute to this incredibly worthy initiative, please could you make a donation by clicking on the “Donate” button.

Please also follow our progress and daily updates on Facebook as we chronicle the highs and lows of this journey, celebrating the beauty of nature and using our able bodies to help others who don’t have this blessing.

We are also going to be joined and supported by our 70-something year old Moms as they support us en route in a camper van.

Here’s to a great adventure and an even better cause!
