There's a place in Aotearoa called Kingseat. This isn't it. But it should be! #wainuiototo #tātahi #ataahua . . Coming this July: how I cycled all around the NZ coastline, in full-on book form. The story of New Zealand's first and fullest coastal circumnavigation on a bike. How I did it and why you don't want to! #Followme here or jump on FB: 'Dunc Wilson Adventures' to know more! . . . #aotearoa #waikato #coromandel #lovenz #nzadventures #nz #viewpoint #beautifulnz #paradise #gopro #purenz #adventure #adventuregram #newchums #livetoexplore #earthpixnz #ourwild #earthpix #roamtheplanet #outdoors #travel #travelnz #modernwild #magic #kiwi #kapai
A silly opportunity I'd be silly not to take: it's now three years since I finished cycling the NZ coast & the book about my unique Kiwi adventure is real close to completion... Tell you more real soon! Someone asked me earlier why I did it. My answer went a bit like this: I love being in the woppiest wop wops of all... the noise of the waves... the smell of our native rainforest... sleeping to the call of the morepork at night! Here was a chance to go right round this land, hitched to the freedom of a bicycle... doing something no one's ever done before... I'd be silly not to!
Cycling up this 100km+ monster beach required strength & a plan. It's exposed, there's few people around. Racing the tide meant a pace had to be kept to & snack breaks swift. Riding at night was challenging, with only the sound of the waves & the slope of the beach to guide me. Don't drift towards that ship's light, thinking it's a town! Pic taken during an 'easy' part! #bikenz #experience #life
Riding down this hill in 2014 helped confirm for me I'd made the right choice to quit my job to try and cycle the NZ coastline. There was a lot of work ahead. I'd have to ride to Stewart Island first, but I knew the next time I saw this view, it would be as part of that great journey. What I didn't know was I'd end up rocking it after dark! Still, yesterday I got to return in daylight and show @sam_farrell19 - what a rush! #muriwai #bikeadventure #destinations
