As ride organiser I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to those brave people that showed up in Tekapo on the 21st. Most knew nothing of the eccentric behind the scheme. It was a serious leap of faith to front up to a unknown ride with an unknown organiser. But they brought along the important things needed, a sense of adventure and a willingness to tackle each day as it comes (and of course a bike :-)
And THANK YOU to anyone that encouraged, or possibly cajoled, a rider to come along. You now have to listen to their stories for the next month!
And to those closet Brevet riders.... you can do it! You may not want to scale mountains in a blizzard (Ian?) but there is still plenty of great riding to be had right here at home.
|Tekapo returns to normal (yes, including the tour buses)|
Will tidy up the website over the next day or so that reading the day by day account it a little easier with direct links.
