A short update to share that we made it! We’ve cycled from Scotland to New Zealand without getting detained, kidnapped or run over (although the Nepalese drivers did their best)! We arrived in Auckland airport and had the New Zealand bio security team take a huge interest in our camping gear given how far we’ve travelled; they even threatened to quarantine our tent (which isn’t a massive surprise given its smell after eight months on the road).
Congratulations, Harriet! Amazing news and hope you and Matt enjoy the cycle across New Zealand. Heading off to Wales for RTC '22 soon - what am I going to do without you magically appear to take great pics? You'll be missed on the trip, but maybe see you for RTC '23? :-)
Congratulations on accomplishing your dream! How many of us succeed in completing a dream goal we set for ourselves? Now comes the hard part-where you do even more spectacular things going forward.
Massive congratulations!!! I’d almost forgotten there was an end point. What am I going to read and cheer for from now?!?
Warmest congratulations! Sensational achievement!
Congrats on making it all the way there - awesome adventure - the power of bikes 💚
You stars! Well done, both of you. We've so enjoyed following your route on polarsteps, reading about your adventures and panicking that you'd met a tiger in SE Asia. 💕💕
Hi Harriet. RTC22 was brilliant, but we missed you and others from the last trip who couldn't make it. Lots of talking of doing RTC23 - maybe you'll be back in time to do the next one if it gets off the ground? Take care and thanks for keeping in touch. Hope you and Matt have a blast in New Zealand - very jealous.
Yes here in Newbury tonight, one more day to London 👍
