Stephanie Says Cycling!

Hamilton to Cambridge return via Te Awa River Ride 6 June

My 12 year old son and a friend (my guide to the safest routes) joined me for this ride.  We wiggled our way on and off old, new and half finished paths and a bit of highway to a yummy lunch at the valedrome, went back down the Te Awa River Ride completed section and home via a dairy with treats!

Hamilton - A few wrong turns! - Gordonton Return 3 June

After waiting all morning for the fog to clear I set off without a decent map or phone with data....  added quite a few km to the trip, had lunch picked up some fabric and headed home in a rush!

Hamilton to Ngaruawahia return 1 June

First 34 km done!  I left 12 pm I think and got back around 3pm including quite a bit of camera fiddling and a lunch stop. If you just biked fast it might take two hours, if you take your time to read every info board and take photos of birds etc it could take you all day.  Te Awa River Ride could be a full lesson on history of the Waikato and Kingiitanga (Maori King Movement), nature or bridges!

Break the Cycle of Poverty Lockdown

I'm biking the Poverty Cycle to fight modern slavery.

Human traffickers lure people away from their home to another country, where they are forced to work. 

The 219 kms I will cycle is the length of a route used by traffickers who take girls from desperately poor families in Keng Tung, Myanmar (Burma) to Chiang Rai, Thailand.   Tear Fund works to free these girls and bring their abusers to justice. 

I have hardly ever biked up a hill or out of the city before so it will be fun getting out there! 

Please help by sponsoring me, every dollar counts :-)
