Its been almost three weeks since the start of the ride now and so far Rick has been very lucky with the weather and avoided any significant rain. Since the last update Rick has stopped in Ashburton, Christchurch (where he had a day’s rest), Amberly, Cheviot, Kaikoura, Kekerengu, Blenheim and Picton.
Support driver Paul Radley handed over to Walter Van Der Kley for the second half of South Island. Thanks Paul for your time and generosity and we look forward to seeing you again in KeriKeri.
Having arrived in Picton a few days early, Rick is having some rest time until Sunday when he crosses the strait to start the North Island ride.
Rick and the team would like to sincerely thank the following people for accommodating and hosting them at the various stops
- Graham and Susan Clark
- Ellwyn & Neroli Mackie.
- Kevin and Angela McDonnell
- Ralph and Margaret
- Walter and Heather Van Der Kley
The fundraising target currently stands as about 1535 pounds or $3172 NZ.
