Kiwi Chronicles Episode 1: To the Edge of the World
Our first full episode of our Kiwi Chronicles is complete! Updating from Waiheke Island. Working hard on getting the second episode done while we have reliable internet. Look for a special post on Bicycle Times. Also we’re excited to have Adventure Cycling as another video sponsor. Cheers!
(Keep our adventures going and the site growing! If you’ve enjoyed our stories, videos and photos over the years, consider buying our ebook Panniers and Peanut Butter, or our new 2012 calendar or some of the fun zombie apocalypse shirts we’re designing.)

How exciting! But, now, I can’t wait until you get back home and open the first R & L Bacon Meat Pies franchise.

First video rocks! Excited to see more soon. Russ, looks like you’re well on your way to becoming a documentarian!

Really enjoyed the 1st ep! So well shot and cut. It’s quite strange seeing your home town as a ‘faraway’ place. Can’t wait to see the bridge crossing. You timed your trip well there – it was an inaugural event!
LACBC Planning Committee tonight, blaming OC biking victims & guilty of DUI but not killing cyclist « BikingInLA December 13, 2011 at 12:12 pm
[…] A Canadian cyclist is nearly refused entry to this country because he didn’t have a helmet. The Department of DIY strikes in Toronto. An Ottawa cyclist files suit after an open manhole leaves him an incomplete quadriplegic. Evidently, English soccer fans — or at least Hotspur fans — are too dense to figure out the difference between Olympic cyclist Chris Hoy and Premier League referee Chris Foy. In the UK, they actually enforce speed limits on popular cycling routes; go figure, huh? What do Dutch expats miss more than bicycling? Herring. An Aussie driver goes on a crime spree after killing a cyclist. Long Beach’s biking expats take their Path Less Pedaled to New Zealand. […]

Awesome – makes me pretty homesick for my own town, even though I’m in it right now.
Also, sounded to me like you pronounced the backpackers name right.
At some stage try pronouncing Ngaruawahia – muahahaha.

Fantastic. Can’t wait for part 2.
