The Motor Neurone Cycle Challenge, NZ 2015

The Motor Neurone Cycle Challenge 2015

In February 2015 Carey Vivian embarked on an inspiring 6 week mission; cycling off-road and unsupported for 4,000 km from Cape Reinga (North Island, New Zealand) to Bluff (South Island, New Zealand) to fundraise for the Motor Neurone Disease Association of New Zealand. This challenging cycle route criss-crosses the country several times and equates to more than two times the distance if the shortest on-road route was taken. The ride will push Carey’s endurance and willpower to the extreme. To complete the challenge route within the 6 week timeframe Carey will need to average at least 100km per day despite possible adverse weather conditions and physical difficulties.

Carey’s father was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease two years ago. Carey decided he needed to do something tangible to help the association, and used his expertise in biking to aid fundraising and awareness. Since the age of 2 Carey has done it all: BMX, road cycling, track cycling, mountain biking, touring, single speed and cyclocross. An elected life member of the Queenstown Mountain Bike Club and a Trustee on Queenstown Trails Trust. Carey’s mission of the Motor Neurone Cycle Challenge is to raise $50,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association of NZ and promote public awareness of Motor Neurone Disease along the way.
