New Zealand Cycle Talk – 6 October, Bristol

The Wilderness Lecture series has been running in Bristol since 1987 and Maria and I are exciting to be part of this year’s line-up of speakers, speaking about our cycle across New Zealand at the start of the year.

Our talk will entertain anyone with a spirit of adventure. We’ll explain how with very little planning, little experience of cycle touring and after having only met each other a few months previously, we loaded our bikes onto international flights to New Zealand with the intention of cycling 2400km from Cape Reinga to Bluff. Our journey was powered by an unrelenting appetite for extreme physical challenges, and more than a few blueberry muffins! It will either leave you wanting an ice-cream or reaching for the chamois cream!
