hello from New Zealand! Just wanted to post about our Virus Buster Run.The ride goes from Auckland to The Burt Munro Challenge and back again over 12 days. We have pre-selected bars in each town for riders to meet at the end of each day. There is live music organised where possible and raffle tickets are sold for a COVID-related charity.
The purpose of this run is to twist the throttle on the economy by bringing business to New Zealand's hard-hit restaurants, bars, hotels, motels and retail outlets.
People are free to join for the entire trip or just meet at the nominated bars. This 'Gypsy Run' style means that riders from anywhere in the country can join in. It's not just for motorcycle riders though, everyone is welcome to come to the bars.
