Our team (Mark, Neil and Ruth) are planning to undertake a unique challenge! Over Christmas we have set ourselves the challenge to do a mountain bike traverse of the South Island, from Nydia bay in the north to doubtful sound in the south. We have set ourselves a couple of objectives:
- to ride as close to the main divide as possible
- to follow as much single track as possible; and
- to be self sufficient.
Please help support us by donating to our chosen children's charity - Variety. Variety fund a broad range of programmes, from much-needed medical equipment, to life-changing mobility needs, to innovative educational initiatives.
Each year Variety provides around 450 deserving or disadvantaged children with the freedom and independence of their very own bike through their Bikes for Kids programme. Some of these children have overcome adverse circumstances, in some situations the family is simply not in a position to purchase a bike and in other cases the programme recognises and rewards children who are role models at their school or in their community.
With your sponsorship, more kids can experience the joy and freedom of riding a bike.
Ruth, Neil and Mark
