We love the idea of more places to ride, and we love helping out fellow cyclists.
There’s a Trust down south that’s aiming to get a cycleway open in Dunedin through a couple of old rail tunnels, the Caversham and Chain Hills tunnels. It’s the Dunedin Tunnels Trail Trust, info at www.dttt.org.nz.
They’re doing a bit of fundraising to get this show on the road, and we like the way they’re doing it. The fundraiser itself is a great t-shirt sale that closes next week: a 3 week campaign that only proceeds if they get to 100 orders. The shirts are dry tech (rather than plain cotton), and work out at approx $NZ35 including shipping ($US20 + $US6.85). You can check out the t-shirts at teespring.com/dttt2012
It works like this: you order a t-shirt and the shirt is sent over (so far so normal), BUT the money will only be taken and the shirt sent if the number of orders reaches 100 or more by the campaign end date of 5th June. At present they’re sitting on 74 – so close!
Dunedin is a bit far for an afternoon’s ride from Lyall Bay, but a t-shirt is a t-shirt wherever you are plus you get to help out on something dear to all our hearts. So go on, check it out and put a few bucks where your wheels want to be!
