To maintain interest in New Zealand cycling until we can reschedule our planned forum, and to add to your lockdown entertainment/inspiration, here is a 22-minute video.
But firstly, “Kopiko Aotearoa” is a 1,050km [+15,000M] brevet (timed, monitored, endurance ride) across New Zealand’s North Island, either direction. The route comprises sealed backroads, dirt/gravel roads, and trails. (For more info: http://www.touraotearoa.nz/p/kopiko.html; route https://ridewithgps.com/routes/36560323).
Secondly, there is a Bike North link to this video. It features Amy Kwong, a member from 2011 to 2016, and Ride Leader in latter stages. She moved to NZ for work.
Here is the video (spotted by Greg Pointing).
