“New Zealand has been called God’s own country and the ‘Paradise of the Pacific’ since the early 1800s. Travelers generally agree New Zealand deserves this description. Lonely Planet named New Zealand the world’s top travel destination… New Zealand is a country of stunning and diverse natural beauty: Soaring mountain peaks, fiords, lakes, rivers, and active volcanic features. The islands are inhabited by many species of unique fauna, including the elusive kiwi, which has become the national symbol. The Maori culture continues to play an important part in everyday New Zealand life.”
We will start the ride from the top of the North Island – Cape Reinga – and will cycle to the bottom of the South Island – Bluff, then we will continue other side of South Island up to Christchurch. It is the preliminary information which to be updated. Because of remote destination and long preparations (we have to book campsites in advance etc.) the registration to the tour starts almost a year before. First time we have to limit the number of participants. Only the first 40 who will register from April 1, 2010 until deadline October 15, 2010 will be confirmed for the New Zealand ride.
