What next?

First up, if you haven't filled in the feedback form mentioned a couple of posts ago, get stuck in and share some of your experience. Then check out all the feedback given already - quite entertaining. There are also some great write-ups and photos to be seen (see the list over on the right).

Also, we have about 20 Kiwi Brevet musettes left. I've paid for them and made the $500 donation to the Castle Hill trail builders, so now I really, really want to move them on. They're only $16 - bargain! See the 'how to buy' instructions in the last post.

When's the next Kiwi Brevet? Well, Scott and Jo have volunteered to run it (and the Brevette) in the future - yee haa! They're going to run it in the first week of February 2015 (starting on the 31st of Jan). To fit in with that timing, the Tawhio o Whanganui will (if run again) most likely be moved to late 2014.

In Feb-March 2016, Jonathan will be running Tour Aotearoa - a 3000 km brevet from Cape Reinga to Bluff. It will follow a similar route to the one described at the back of Classic New Zealand Cycle Trails. The route will be updated at the end of next year to include several sections of new cycle trails that are currently being constructed.

This length-of-New-Zealand brevet will be organised along the same lines as this year's Kiwi Brevet, and will probably be a one off event (who would be crazy enough to do this ride twice?). No entry fees, no prizes, just an unforgettable ride that will take from 15 to 30 days.

Tour Aotearoa will also have two brevette options: the North Island section and the South Island section (both around 1500 km long).
