The New Zealand Climb

Last weekend, during our public fundraising for the , there was quite a bit of interest as to the nature of Andy’s 1000km route. So having previously posted the Route Map of the South Island Cycle we decided to include a break down of the elevation of each stage of the journey below. Not only will Andy have to cycle 1000km from sea level up to heights of 1076m in the Southern Alps but there will also be head-winds, sheer drops and steep descents to be tackled.

Don’t forget you can now to support the Digino Challenge.
