Having just returned from our holiday to Australia it’s time for me to turn my attention to my next longer term project – the NZ TT2000 long distance ride scheduled for February 2018.

I’m planning on doing this with Jon Mitchell who rode a Saddle Sore 1600 with me in March this year.


Current thinking is that we might attempt an IBA Bun Burner 1500 (miles) during this event but without completing the route planning I’m not 100% sure how achievable this might be. A BB1500 is 2,414km within 36 hours.

Whatever we do, I’m aiming to try to raise funds for Aran again. It might be reasonable to stick to my original target of $1/km, but with the higher km target this time.

Keep an eye out for further details on the route planning effort over the coming weeks. 🙂
