Incredible trip of a lifetime!

“New Zealand is an incredibly beautiful country and to see it "from the saddle", there are no words to describe "this adventure"! Incredible and amazing, jaw-dropping! Cycling the south island allowed us to "get up close and personal" to the beauty of New Zealand and to the Kiwi people and their visitors - what a privilege! Our heartfelt thanks to Ben & Kate - we are grateful and we miss you!”
