Attention all WheelersRecently I spotted the attached article and thought that I / we could help in some way.

These young women are not highly experienced cyclists but are having a crack at the “Full Monty” Cape Reinga to Bluff starting at the top in December. They are also making the ride into a fund raiser for Oscar, a 3 year old boy in Wellington has cerebral palsy.

I emailed them a while ago and as a result of this they will be staying with Jude and I on the night of Monday the 12th of December. Their schedule for the north is:

Drive from Auckland up to Cape Reinga on December 10th

• Ride Cape to Mangonui Dec 11th

• Ride to Managonui to Whangarei on the 12th

• Ride Whangarei to Ak on the 13th

And so on and so on to Bluff in early January

Quite an ambitious schedule given at least one of them had never ridden more than 60 km a couple of months ago. However they are young & fit so good luck to them.

Any ideas that you can come up with to help are welcome. I thought it would be nice if a few of us joined them for the ride into and or out of Whangarei. I suspect they could use a bit of support for the last few (or more) km into town as the first two days will be pretty big.

Their FaceBook page is

There is a North Shore Times article about the ride here:

We will post information updates on the Wheelers web site and Face book as the time gets closer.

If you have any ideas or are keen to ride please contact Mike or Email:

Let’s lend a hand…
