Pai's cycle tours


Paihikara is an adventurous character and can often be found riding along on top of the panniers or strapped on to my back pack during our cycle tours. You can share his travels by clicking on the links below.

We some times do a lot of pedaling so expect a lot of words! Included in some of these documents is the equipment that has been carried along with us during our cycle tours.

The story of Pai

Paihikara was given to Di in May 2012 as a gift before her first self supported cycle tour in Europe.

His name is the maori  word for cyclist.

He rode on the top of the panniers for most of the 5,000km cycle tour through Holland, Belgium, Germany, Denmark and Norway.

Pai has been the inspiration behind the cycling kiwi logo and plays a big roll in our marketing.

Pai joins Di on all her long rides around our fantastic country and through the back roads and trails overseas.
