Queen Charlotte bike ride

Sergey from Nelson South

Anyone with an eMTB (electric mountain-bike) want to do the Queen Charlotte Trail before December 1st?

The plan is falling into place!
Friday 29 Nov – Drive to Picton and stay in cheap backpackers or other suitable accommodation.

Saturday 30 Nov – Take an early ferry (or water taxi) to Ship Cove and Bike to Portage – 50K

We’ve rented a cool place through Book a Bach that sleeps 4. There’s only two beds but there is space on the couch or floor for a reduced rate. 🙂

Sunday Dec 1 – Bike to Picton: 20K to Anakiwa (on QC Trail) and 20K (on road)

Drive back to Nelson in the afternoon

There is an opportunity to do a little more trail riding on the way from Anakiwa to Picton, depending on how much energy everyone has.

The Team from Ryman Healthcare Limited

Time spent in respite care can range from a single night to a few weeks. It provides a welcome break and peace of mind knowing that your loved one will receive round-the-clock care from friendly, experienced care teams.

May Kitchen knows how important it is to provide carers with a break. After visiting her husband Stuart in respite care at a Ryman village, she was tempted to move in herself! “If it was me, I think I would enjoy it because it’s just so beautiful and the food is good.”

Ryman villages provide warm and welcoming communities. Where residents can enjoy activities and outings while forming friendships along the way.
