Welcome to Read Cycle Read!

After months of deliberation, compromises and many a pro/con list we have decided to head back to New Zealand this year (2018). It’s a long way, and a rapid transition if taking the standard 24 hour flight. So to slow things down we’ve decided to make our journey by bicyle - a chance to see the world in slow-mo and immerse ourselves in foreign cultures along the way.

We are supporting and raising funds for the World Land Trust as we go. The WLT is an international conservation charity, which protects the world’s most biologically important and threatened habitats, in particular by developing partnerships with local individuals, communities and organisations. We will be visiting some of their projects along the way.

As of September 2018 we’ve already cycled 4,700 miles from the UK and are aiming to raise £1 per mile ridden.

We’ll try and update the blog here every few weeks, or follow us on Instagram (@readcycleread) or Strava for more regular updates.

Please feel free to get in touch - we’d love to hear from you!
