• What a great story, wonderful photos. We are experiencing a warm and dry fall/autumn here in London, UK. Brilliant cycling weather and stunning colours all around.

    The LHT is as you say hard to beat, I call mine a sofa. Yours is a beautiful ride to look at too.

    Beautiful pictures.

    What bikes do you plan to take when you go to New Zealand? Would you ever consider taking a trip, not necessarily overseas, on a tadpole recumbent bike?

  • Are you shooting with the new Olypmus E-PM1 PEN Camera in the pictures?

  • Yes. Shot all the photos in this post with the EPM1. The last few posts have been either with the EPM1 or EP3.

    You are off to NZ? When? for how long? I can hook you up with some top folks, in Auckland, Rotorua (MTB mecca), Wellington & Christchurch. Just drop me a line!

  • Thanks Mike for the offer! Some projects fell through that would have allowed us to go so we’re still working on raising funds to get there, but hoping to do go in the next few months.

    The LHT is hard to beat under a lot of circumstances. I’m 5 miles from putting the 1000th mile on my own after just a few months of taking ownership.

    Beautiful ride you are on. I was noticing that the trees here in Texas have yet to start turning.

  • I’m going to New Zealand Feb. 16th to March 21st. I’ll be riding a Bike Friday New World Tourist (picking it up in Eugene in two weeks!). Doing both North and South Islands. North Island with a couple of friends, South on my own. It would be cool if I saw you. Will you take the Bromptons?

  • Haven’t decided what bikes to take yet. Depends if we will do much off road riding while there.

    Like you said, the LHT is hard to beat for the money. Working at a bike shop with lots to choose from, its still my go to bike, about 1500 miles on it. A couple overnights and plan to do more.
    Just ordered a couple zombie shirts for my son and I(just had some awesome burgers at new place here in Des Moines, Zombie Burger, and wished we had the shirts to wear). My brother-in-law is a Kiwi and is back home visiting, and says its heaven. Have a great time, keep the posts coming.
