Tour Aotearoa 2017

Welcome to my blog.  I started bike packing 3 years ago and all I can say is that I am hooked.  The sense of abstraction you get from the daily norm is something words struggle to convey.  I think it has something to do with the fact, that whilst you are bike packing you only have to concern yourself with eating, drinking and getting from A to B.  It’s a humble experience to be able to observe people around you rushing around whilst you are in this transient abstracted existence.

If you are contemplating embarking on your own mini nomadic bike packing adventure, then all I can say is go for it.  I am sure you too will find the whole experience very enlightening and rewarding.   A word of warning though and I hold no responsibility should such an event should occur.  If you stay out in the wilderness too long, you may turn feral and struggle to reintegrate back into society.

I hope you find my musings inspirational and they spur you on to tackle your own adventure!  If any of my routes catch your eye send me a message and I’ll see if I still have the GPX files to hand.

Good luck, happy pedaling and who knows, I’ll maybe see you on the road 🙂
