4am. Brisbane Airport. The first team members arrive for to leave for this years Challenge For Change.  One thousand kilometres from Wellington in New Zealand to the very northern tip of the North Island. 

Three separate flights to carry all the bikes. The first group leaving at 5:00am. One via Melbourne, one via Sydney and one direct to Wellington. All arriving about the same time.

Bad news, Reid's bike has gone missing. We are shuttled to our overnight accommodation in Levin. After many telephone conversations they still cannot locate Reid's bike so Reid's cousin, a NZ local, comes to the rescue with a spare bike he can borrow. 

And so the journey begins. Cyclist and crew get ready. We are off on our big adventure tomorrow.
