Bike With Andy and Help Him Save the Petrels!

Bike a bit with Andy at Queen Elizabeth Park, Paekakariki on Sunday 3 Oct

Imagine a sanctuary for birds like Kapiti Island, 5500km away in the Pitcairn Islands. The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) has plans to eradicate rats from Henderson Island in 2011, but is short of funding. This project is a single effort that will provide lasting ecological benefits for thousands of years in the future by protecting a breeding ground. It only needs to be done once.

World record biker to visit NZ, as he attempts to bike the world in 99 days

On the 31/03/10, British professional racing cyclist Alan Bate will begin a dramatic attempt to sensationally lower the Round the World Cycling Record to just 99 days. This punishing schedule has been widely ridiculed as “impossible”. Mark Beaumont set a fantastic Guinness record of 195 days for the 18,000 miles. This record was broken twice last year and now stands at 165 days (to be ratified by Guinness) His birth date is 01/04/65. So, at 45 years of age on the first of April, he is twice that of the current record holder.
