And not only that Crumpie is home in Oz for the next few weeks competing for the Oz title, along with a few of the poms and the local heroes.

Ruapuna directions
Hi there.
Ruapuna is about 15km from the middle of Chch, and about 20-25 minutes to get there. It's easy to find as it's off the West Coast highway. All the maps will show the road to Arthurs Pass and the West Coast out of Chch, going thru Yauldhurst at the edge of the city. About 1km past the Yauldhurst pub there is a turn off to the left that takes you right past Ruapuna. From that way, take the second entrance into Ruapuna, the first one is onto the road-race and drag circuits. What's the chance of meeting up for a beer? There's a spare bed or two as well if you want.

Kind regards

Hi there

Check out our website, www.rideforlife.co.nz we are travelling NZ raising money for the Cancer Society, you can join in for the entire trip or just a day or two, it would be great to have a fellow Hubb member to ride with.

As for the bikes there are a few Transalpers available

Cheers Scott

I would love to be able to help you more mate, but I'm getting married this weekend, and then off for a few weeks fishing in the southern lakes. Good luck with the bike search, I suspect with a newer bike you will have the best luck at a dealer. New prices for bike are pretty low in NZ, so maybe consider that? Try these guys. I have no interest in their business nor do I get anything out of sending anyone to them, just I get treated really well by them.
I will be back in Chch about the 7th of Feb so maybe we can meet up after that?
