2017 - RIDERS UPDATE # 4
Fun times ahead.....


What a year to look forward to.....well with Trans NZ on the horizon and all ;)

So have you all booked your flights and travel plans?  I need them ASAP.  

Next steps for everyone to get ready for your trip:
  1. Head on over to the online spreadsheet (link in box below)
    1. Check we have the right spelling of your name
    2. Check we have you in the right category (if you turn 40 this year you should be in 40+ cat)
    3. Check we have your country right that you want to represent
    4. Check we have all your friends listed next to your name - rooming allocations will start soon
    5. Check you have put down the name you want on your race plate - if it's blank, then I get to choose for you ;) - order goes in January 10th
    6. Add in your arrival and departure details, I need these asap
    7. Jersey orders have been submitted so you can't change your sizes now and that column has been locked on the spreadsheet!
  2. Make sure you have purchased your travel insurance 
  3. Make sure you have purchased your TRIP CANCELLATION INSURANCE for everyone!  As of January 1st, you have past your last cancellation time frame, so there are no longer any refunds from this point forward. If you get injured then you can claim your registration back through the trip cancellation insurance that you purchase.  Highly recommended. From past stats about 15 of you are going to get injured between now and race date :( sorry but its true, and I want to make sure you aren't out of pocket for it. Please purchase it.  I know for kiwis you can get this through AA Insurance. Everyone else can get it through your travel insurance.  
  4. If you have just recently registed and missed the past newsletters about key arrival times and dates then head on over to and look at past newsletters


For those of you looking to hang around a little longer after the race is over in Queenstown (highly recommended), then Pinewood Lodge (where we are staying for the last 4 nights), are offering a 10% discount to you.  They have rooms from dorm style to private rooms to ensuite rooms etc.  Just email to book and mention you are a Trans NZ participant to get the 10% off.  But do it quick as I believe they are already close to selling out.  


For those arriving into Christchurch early, remember that we do pick ups from the airport or out front of YMCA downtown Christchurch 12 Hereford St only. So stay at YMCA or somewhere close to there!

Well I think that is is for now!
