Cycling New Zealand 2015.  I closed the shop for 2 months, while I cycled the end to end of New Zealand.  That is from Cape Reinga at the northerly point of the north island, to Bluff, the most southerly point on the south island.  Actually as I had time, when I got to Bluff, I cycled back to wellington along the east coast, so I actually did a bit more than the end to end.  Not sure exactly how far, but probably about 2500 miles.  It was probably ther nicest cycling I have ever done.  Beautiful scenery, relatively quiet roads, lots of off road tracks, friendly laid back people, and fantastic weather.  I will put photos and more detail soon.
