Tracking Link and SPOT hire

Good evening one and all!

Hope you training and preparation is all coming together nicely?

As mentioned in my previous post tracking will be provided by Maprogess again this year. The tracking page can be found here https://kiwibrevet2019.maprogress.com/

Registration for tracking and to hire trackers can be done here https://kiwibrevet2019.maprogress.com/event/register
Tracking only is $34 (for those with their own device) and $99 to hire a device which includes tracking.

Boom, another thing off the list! We're ticking em off quick-smart now ;-)

2019 registration is open for business

Hello everyone, thanks for for patience.

I am happy to start taking registration for the 2019 edition of the Kiwi Brevet and Kiwi Brevette events.

Here are the links to the two courses. Please note these links are for planning purposes ONLY, I will provide a finalised .gpx file and cue sheet for each event closer to the start.
Brevet - 1112 km with 20500m ascent https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27305903
Brevette - 756 km with 15300m ascent https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27444344
There may be some minor changes to these routes but they will not change much, you can start planning food and water stops, contact services for opening times etc.

This is a SELF SUPPORTED bikepacking adventure. You must complete the ENTIRE course under your own steam, without a support crew or ANY outside assistance (other than what is commercially available to every participant).
To register please send us an email to kiwibrevet@gmail.com with the following information.
Name(s) - You can ride either event as an individual or a team
Email address for ALL participants
Team Name if you have one
Event participating in - either Brevet or Brevette

Then head over to this page and make a donation of at least $50 PER PERSON to Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue. (Please use at least your first name and first initial of surname so I can check them off)

Please note you are ALL (at least one tracker per team) required to use a SPOT tracker for both events

Tracking and SPOT hire will be provided by Maprogress. A link will follow to register for tracking or to hire trackers.

Any questions flick me a message to kiwibrevet@gmail.com

Cheers, Scott and Jo

Broken body means time to map

Hello one and all!

Some of you will know, others will not but I (Scott) broke a couple of vertebra in my neck on Easter Sunday whilst mountain biking. I'm a lucky boy, no permanent damage and a full recovery is expected. It has slowed me down somewhat - but it has freed up some time to start mapping out routes for Kiwi Brevet 2019.

Kiwi Brevet and Brevette 2019 will start and finish in the traditional home of the Kiwi Brevet, Seymore Square in Blenheim on Saturday 2nd February 2019 at 10am. You have until 10pm on Sunday 10th February to complete either of the courses.

We hope to be somewhat more organised this year than in the past but you know how life gets ;-)

Keep an eye on updates here and on Facebook over the coming weeks.

Cheers, Scott and Jo
