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.

Paihikara's 2012 cycle tour from Amsterdam in Holland to Narvik in Norway.

Pai flew to the Gold Coast in Australia and had an adventurous few days cyclinging back and forth between Queensland and New South Wales in August 2014.

10 Day XPD Adventure Race - Queensland, Australia
Pai wasn't around for this one and it isn't really cycle touring but it was quite a journey all the same.

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.
