In The Moment | Bikepacking 1100kms across New Zealand (Kōpiko Aotearoa)

In February 2021, I took part in a self-supported brevet event riding the Kōpiko Aotearoa – a newly created 1,100km bikepacking route across the North Island of New Zealand. This is a summary of my experience and a love letter to bike travel, more generally. Thanks to the Kennett brothers, for establishing such a dope ride and brevet event, and to the many locals and other bikepackers that made this ride so special. Hopefully see you out there on another trail, somewhere.
