New Zealand: Tip to Tip

Interactive Map

January 2018

Continuing the theme…if you want to see and experience the country, cycle it!

Flying into Auckland, I’ll hitch a motor aided ride to Cape Reinga and start the self sufficient cycle from North to South. Going via Rotorua, Lake Taupo, Napier and Wellington I’ll camp as much as possible and keep costs down. Then on to Picton via ferry and a zig zag route of the South Island taking in Nelson, Kaikoura, Mount Cook, Christchurch, Queenstown, Fiordland National Park and the Southern most point, Bluff.

I will be allowing 3 months for the adventure, making time to put in extra km above the estimated 4,000km. This will be my first ride incorporating a tent with the hope of being closer to nature and really taking each day as it comes.
