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.

We’re adjusting the electorate boundaries

Electoral Commission

We’re adjusting our electorate boundaries for the next two general elections.

By making sure each electorate has about the same number of people, we can give all New Zealanders equal representation in Parliament. It’s all balance.
If we move one of your electorate boundaries, you could end up in a different electorate to the one you’re in now – so we show you what we’re proposing before we make any changes and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts.
